Dr. Maya Angelou and Poetry Resources

Dr. Maya Angelou

Homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum puto", or "I am a human being, I consider nothing that is human alien to me."
 -Terence

Speaking before 6,000 people at the Holmes Convocation Center Tuesday night as part of the 29th MLK Commemoration, Dr. Maya Angelou gave a shout-out to libraries.

Dr. Angelou specifically encouraged students to contact, meet, or get to know a librarian, and to find the library's poetry collections. We agree!

There are many ways to contact a librarian: Phone, text, email, RAP session, and in-person.

For more information about Maya Angelou, see the guide to Library Resources for Maya Angelou.

To find poetry in Belk Library, search APPSearch from the Library's homepage.
You can search by specific poet, e.g. Maya Angelou, or search by keywords, e.g. African American poetry.
You can further limit by format (articles, book, eBooks, etc.), or limit by location (IMC, Main Stacks, etc.).
You can refine your search by Tag: see the word cloud image below  for African American poetry:
