The Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History Library’s collection gathers works on the African American experience, Africa, and the African Diaspora, with a focus on the social sciences and humanities. The library has a small collection of print periodicals, and provides access to a wide array of electronic journals and databases. The Stone Center Library works closely with the other UNC-Chapel Hill libraries to develop resources relevant to African, African American, and African Diaspora Studies.
The library features reading and browsing areas, two group study rooms, and ten study carrels. Our study rooms are first come, first served, so feel free to come see if they’re open.
Wireless Internet is available in the library to UNC students, faculty and staff. A printer is available for use with an ONYEN. At this time there is no photocopier available for student use, but we do have a scanner along with four desktop computers.
Materials may be checked out of the Stone Center Library with a UNC One Card or Library Borrower’s Card. Interlibrary loan is available through Davis Library. Books and materials checked out of the Stone Center Library may be returned to Davis Library as well.
Cell phones, food, and drinks are not permitted in the Stone Center Library.
