African Studies WWW

Africanists can now access the database of African Studies materials on the World-Wide Web, which contains teaching materials for teachers, the business community, and researchers. The Web also contains information on programs and resources at Penn, in the US, Africa and elsewhere. The African Studies Program's outreach program, which maintains the electronic bulletin board, is prepared to extend its resources to the local community, surrounding schools and colleges, and the public at large.
