Use this guide to complete your research. For additional sources and search tips, see the History libguide. If you would like to meet with me about your research just click on the Schedule Research Consultation button in the right-hand column.
A good place to begin any research project is with a reference book (see a few examples below). Use reference books to track down background information; choose and/or refine your research topic; identify disciplinary terms, an important consideration in "keyword" searches of databases such as JSTOR; and quickly locate autobiographies as well as high-impact secondary monographs.
