|Books, Periodicals, and Cataloged Online Resources|
Three online library catalogs are the best places to begin a search for Jackson-related books, periodicals, and other cataloged printed and online resources held in libraries, or accessible through their online catalogs.
The following are suggested keywords, and combinations of keywords which may help you to locate Jackson and related materials in various online catalogs:
If you are looking for books containing information on Senator Jackson's affiliation with the University of Washington, you may wish to consult our Bibliography of University of Washington History.
Additionally, the University of Washington Libraries hosts many research databases in the fields of Political Science and Public Policy, History, and Environmental Sciences, which may be useful resources for identifying and obtaining periodical content relevant to Senator Jackson. (Access to some of these resources may be limited to the UW Community, due to licensing agreements.) The America History & Life database indexes scholarly publications and contains citations relevant to Senator Jackson. The Washington State Newsstand indexes 18 newspapers published in the state of Washington since the mid-1980s, and provides posthumous information on Senator Jackson and his legacy.
|Archival and Manuscript Collections|
Catalog Records & Finding Aids
In addition to the Henry M. Jackson Papers, citations to other archival and manuscript collections in Special Collections, which contain material of interest to Jackson researchers, are referenced in the University of Washington Libraries' Online Catalog. When a finding aid describing a specific collection in greater detail exists, this should be noted in the catalog record. If the finding aid is available online, the catalog record will contain a link to the online version.
You can also search across all of the online finding aids to archival and manuscript collections in the Special Collections through our Finding Aids Database. Finding aids typically describe a collection in much greater detail than is found in a catalog record. Consulting the finding aid is essential to enable the researcher to identify specific boxes and folders of potential interest to their research, and to request them for consultation.
Please, ask reference staff for assistance in identifying archival and manuscripts collections in Special Collections, and their respective finding aids, which might be relevant to your research. Many of our finding aids are still only available in paper copies in Special Collections, and will not be readily identified through the online catalog. In addition, Cumulative Indexes to topical coverage of many of our older collections, and to individuals represented in archival collections, are available only through paper indices located in Special Collections.
Older, Printed Catalogues
You may also wish to consult the following printed guides to archival resources in Special Collections, copies of which are generally available in reference collections in libraries throughout the region, as well as at several locations within the University of Washington Libraries.
|Photographs and Graphic Materials|
The finding aid to the Henry M. Jackson Papers contains a comprehensive inventory of the contents of the Photographic and Graphic Materials portion of the collection. There are over 3,000 photographs in the collection, many of which have been digitized. To view these, search or browse Special Collections' Digital Collections.
Special Collections has additional photographic collections which contain image resources related to Jackson. Fully cataloged collections are described in Photograph Collection finding aids, but you may also perform a general search in the Finding Aids Database to discover references to photographs in predominately paper-based collections. Citations to Jackson and to related individuals or events may also be found in the Photograph Collections Database, which lists as yet unprocessed photograph collections.
