New E-Resources: Africa Commons and Policy Commons

We have acquired two new databases for our library collections: Policy Commons Global Think Tanks and Africa Commons History and Culture. We purchased these e-resources in order to enhance the research capabilities of Loyola Marymount University’s students and faculty across a variety of disciplines, providing access to valuable primary sources and expert analyses.

Africa Commons: History and Culture

Material types include books, magazines, newspapers, historical periodicals, government documents, manuscripts, letters, diaries, posters, photographs, ephemera, art, music, videos, oral histories, and more.
