Before getting started, familiarize yourself with the Library’s website, which describes our services, print and online resources, and other important components of the Queens College Libraries. Of course, the Library’s online catalog will be of great value. Other Library Catalogs may be of use, also, including WorldCat, catalogs of New York City and Metropolitan Area libraries, and catalogs of other libraries in the United States and Worldwide.
The Library offers a variety of research services, including Walk-In-Consultation, Ask-a-Librarian, Telephone Consultation, and Subject Specialists. For information on these services and how to get started with your research, consult the Research Services webpage.
Or, check these Tutorials, prepared by Instructional Services.
Given the interdisciplinary nature of American Studies, other Research Guides prepared by the Library’s subject specialists might prove helpful. See those relating to American Literature, History, Art, Drama and Theater, Political Science, Sociology, Urban Studies.
