Project Description

As outlined in Dr. Combest's assignment (linked below) you will work with a broad topic incorporating primary and secondary sources as a lens through which to illuminate an understanding of your topic's historical significance. This research guide will orient you to sources for your research. Please see Dr. Combest or a librarian along the way if you have questions.

Librarians are here to help! Please email one of them to set up time to meet and discuss your research. Prior to meeting with them, it is expected that you will have used the library's catalog for find books on your topic and searched relevant databases for articles.

Citation assistance will be available through drop in workshops during office hours. Workshop dates will be communicated to your class, it is highly recommended that you attend one.

Contact a Librarian

Feel free to contact a librarian for research or citation assistance. We are generally available in our offices for drop in help or scheduled appointments throughout the academic day.
