How I Can Help You

  • Introduce students to history research tools, sources and strategies via a library workshop tailored to your class. Workshop can include:
    • Developing a research plan
    • Discussion of primary and secondary sources
    • Using specific databases such as Historical Abstracts or International Medieval Bibliography
  • Create a website tailored to your class assignment with links to relevant databases and sources.  For example:
    • HIST 388: Left, Right & Center: Partisan Politics in 20th Century America
    • HIST 498: Utopian Visions in the Industrial Age
    • HSTEU 415: Europe in World War II
  • Discuss ways to best incorporate research skills and library materials into your class assignments. 
    • Track down tricky citations
    • Do a quick literature review
    • Meet with your students individually
    • Purchase books and other material needed for your research
    • Tell you about library services
