This library guide was created to support the study of New Orleans as part of AMST444B, New Orleans: Place, Meaning and Context.

Please use this guide to help develop your research. If you need additional assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me by phone, email, or Facebook. My office hours during the spring semester are Monday, noon-4pm, and online, Sunday night, from 8-11pm. I can also meet at other times to discuss your research needs or for one-on-one instruction on search strategies and sources.

I also serve as liaison to the History Department, so if you want to purchase or gain access to monographs, periodicals, media, or other resources that are not available at UNH, let me know and we'll determine the best strategy for connecting you with the information you need.

I welcome your suggestions for changes or additions to this guide, as well as those geared towards enhancing services provided by the UNH Library.

This is an audio/visual tour and cross section of New Orleans performers and groups mostly using their official websites. I present it to you, without comments, but I certainly have my favorites.
