Welcome! You've come to the right place if you are enrolled in a history class, are a history major, or are pursing a related, research-intensive humanities discipline. Congratulations! You are undertaking one of the most rewarding academic pursuits - research and analysis. The task before you might involve a lot of reading and writing, but have no fear! We can walk through this process together.  I'm here to help you become the best researcher you can be by pointing you toward key databases, books, websites, and primary source materials. 

In this research guide we will explore digital collections where primary sources may be found, how to compose a thesis statement, resources for scholarly secondary sources, and research tips and tricks.  If you have a question, please don't hesitate to ask me, Rejoice. My contact information is off to the right.
