MSRC Series

The MSRC Series was developed in conjunction with the Howard University Press in 1989 as part of the 75th Anniversary activities. The first title, Black Bibliophiles and Collectors:  Preservers of Black History was published in 1990. The series was designed to highlight the vast library, manuscript, archival and graphic resources of the MSRC in order to document Howard University’s contributions to the scholarly study and interpretation of the Black experience.
The MSRC also produces numerous other publications. We routinely publish a variety of research guides, finding aids, exhibit catalogs, etc. The Center may also collaborate with outside publishers on research projects.

Connecting to Our Past
The MSRC has collaborated with Holt McDougal to highlight the Center’s holdings; and the MSRC is featured in its African American History and Literature program materials and its online offerings.

A rare and unique look into American and African-American heritage that can be found only at Howard University. HUArchivesNet was the published quarterly by the MSRC from August 1999 to April 2001. The electronic journal served to link Howard University and WorldCom in an innovative partnership which created new ways to access one of the finest repositories of African and African American resources through the communications technology of WorldCom's Global Networks.


We are pleased to offer several of these publications for purchase in the MSRC. Our staff members will be happy to assist you with placing an order. Call and speak with us at the Director's Office at 202/806-7239/40.
