The academic study of everyday life is based on appreciation for casual objects and ephemeral works which are not always preserved due to wear and tear, general disregard, or misconceptions about their significance. This guide includes suggestions for scholarly sources, as well as collections and community-based websites that make the study of popular culture possible. Please note that the Online Resources page is arranged by topics.
The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
