HST 390: Representation and Memory in US History : Home

Fall 2020 - Dr. Blee

Welcome!

My name is Kathy Shields, and I am the librarian for History and Social science at ZSR Library. One of the best parts of my job is helping students with their research. Even though I won't be in the building this semester, I am still available to meet with you virtually to help you find sources, navigate the library website, help with citation, or answer other questions you may have about research.

Email me or set up a virtual appointment with me using the links in my Profile box below. I look forward to seeing you!

Where do I start?

Use the tabs along the top to navigate through this guide. 

Background Information > This page includes links to reference books (such as subject encyclopedias) and other sources to help you gain background knowledge and a "big picture" of what was going in during a particular point in history or of a particular event. They may include references to primary source materials or secondary sources. 

ZSR Library Catalog > This page includes links to our online catalog, which will help you locate books that contain an analysis of particular events. These may also include references to primary source materials. 

Article DatabasesThis page includes links to our online article databases, which will help you locate scholarly journal articles and articles from periodicals that contain an analysis of particular events. These may also include references to primary source materials. 

Primary Sources > This page includes links to both subscription-based and open archives of periodicals (including newspapers and magazines), books, government documents, and other sources created during or near the time of a particular event. 

KEEP IN MIND: 

If ZSR does not have access to a particular resource (such as a book or article), you can request it through Interlibrary Loan. Items that have to be sent through the mail can take a week or two to arrive, so plan ahead! Ebooks cannot be lent through ILL, but you may be able to request individual chapters be scanned and emailed to you. 

Not every primary source is available in digital format, nor will it be readily available through Interlibrary Loan or other services. Check into the availability of sources you need EARLY in your project.
