UNT Libraries provides two additional general reference resources that contain extensive information related to African American Studies:
CQ Press Electronic Library
(for American government, politics, history, public policy, and current affairs)
Oxford Reference Online
(for full text access to dictionaries and encyclopedias by Oxford University Press and selected titles from the Oxford Companion series)
The following materials are just a small sample of the biographical resources available in the UNT Libraries. These titles are included below because they treat multiple people, are noteworthy for their content, or have relatively recent publication dates; biographies and autobiographies of single individuals as well as works for younger readers are excluded from the list.
