The African Studies Center Outreach Program oversees an Outreach Resource Library with a substantial collection of
materials available for lending to the public. The library's focus is particularly on providing materials for classroom teachers,
elementary through high-school. Audio-visual materials may be borrowed through the mail, while print materials are
generally lent only to visitors. The collection currently comprises approximately 1000 children's books, 1500 adult books,
300 curriculum guides and approximately 200 videos.
Cooperative Africana Microforms Project (CAMP). CAMP is a consortium of Africana libraries which uses the pooled funds of
the membership to purchase commercially available microform sets of research materials on Africa, and to undertake
original filming of unique resources. Materials held by CAMP are available on interlibrary loan from its headquarters at the
Center for Research Libraries. (http://www.crl.edu/areastudies/CAMP/index.htm)
