Welcome to the American Studies research guide for Stevenson Library at Bard College!
This guide is aimed at providing a starting point for research in a variety of subject areas related to American Studies, including literature, history, art, music, film and more. It covers print and online sources as well as supplemental information to aid your research. It also provides helpful information to enable you to better utilize our resources. This guide is a great place to start, but American Studies is a rich and complex field making it difficult to represent the breadth of information available to researchers in just a single guide. For more detailed research needs, I recommend that you talk with a librarian. I am available at the contact links in the right hand box throughout this guide. Also please feel free to suggest additional resources for me to include in this guide.
