Creating unique collections: Caribbean history and culture

Part of the remit of the School is to provide services that would not be replicated elsewhere in the UK university sector. One example of how SAS-Space can help is the growing collection of scholarly resources for the history and culture of the Caribbean. There are two standard reference works for Commonwealth research from the Institute of Commonwealth Studies: Theses in Progress and the Register of Commonwealth Research.
However, these are complemented by other resources: a collection of articles on West Indian music in the Caribbean and England from an Associate Fellow of the ICwS; and articles on nineteenth and twentieth century history of Cuba from an Associate Fellow and a graduate student of the Institute for the Study of the Americas.
