Darfur Crisis: A Selected Bibliography: Home


The intentions of this guide are to provide the researcher with helpful tips, and suggested print and electronic resources about the Darfur Crisis in early 2000.

The guide is divided into ten different categories. Each is designed to give the researcher ideas on how to track down material relating to the In addition this bibliography is an attempt to address the resolution put forth by the ALA (American Library Association) on the Darfur Crisis. It is not meant to be comprehensive, but rather is a selective collection of books, online resources, films and web sites chosen in the hope they can teach what this “crisis” means, and possibility inspire people to take action.
