Title : CASBAH : Caribbean studies, black and Asian history

Description :
The aim of the CASBAH project is to identify and chart national research resources for Caribbean Studies and the history of Black and Asian people in Britain. The project is working with a wide range of UK partner institutions to survey archive holdings of printed and audio-visual materials. Fairly detailed collection-level descriptions of these holdings are available via an online database. The project's website provides full details of the aims and deliverables of the project, partner institutions, and progress reports. The site also includes a series of archive survey reports (e.g. The Institute of Race Relations; London Metropolitan Archive; Wolverhampton Archive and Local Studies Unit). Regional surveys are also planned and sample descriptions of printed and audio-visual collections are available. The Project has also created a list of (unannotated) links to news, publications, events, and related resources. An image gallery is also included with the site.CASBAH receives funding from the Research Support Libraries Programme (RSLP).
