Sussex Centre for American Studies

Resources and facilities

As one of the oldest programmes of its kind in the United Kingdom, American Studies at Sussex offers a rich and deep array of library resources to support undergraduate and postgraduate study.  Whether your research interests tend toward literary or historical topics, the library at Sussex makes available to you an extensive collection of texts, historical documents, microforms, scholarly books, and journal holdings, all carefully and painstakingly assembled by American Studies experts over the past forty-odd years.  We are adding to that collection on a daily basis with higher levels of library spending than ever before.

The following links are meant to serve as an entrée for students and scholars into the American Studies collection housed on campus.
