Asian Pacific American Studies

A guide with resources and tips for doing research in Asian Pacific American Studies

How to Research This Topic

My name is Lux Darkbloom, and I'm the librarian for TRANSFORM. 

My job is to help you to learn and understand how to navigate the library AND the university systems, and I really do want to help. If you need a hand with any research project or question (research- or university-related), please don't hesitate to reach out to me. Just email If email doesn't work best for you, let me know what does. I'm also available by phone, Zoom, Google Chat, Google Hangouts, and FaceTime, though it'll probably take us one email exchange to set things up.

Or if it's 3:00 am, you're really stressed out, and need immediate help, you can talk with an on-duty librarian using that little box below.

When starting your research in Asian Pacific Islander studies, start by gathering background information on your topic. Tertiary sources, such as encyclopedias and reference databases, are good places to start.

Statistics can be a useful tool when researching populations or groups.
