Pathfinder for US History research papers.

About This Guide

This guide (sometimes called a pathfinder) is designed to help you find and use resources for your US History research paper.

We have made separate tabs to help you develop your topic; find reference, or background, sources; find primary sources; find secondary sources (scholarly books or articles); and cite your sources. We have also included a page with lots of tips and tricks that may help you in your research process. Just click the appropriate tab at the top of this page to find out more about each kind of resource. Remember, research is a process, and we (your librarians) are here to help! If you ever have a question, just ask! Happy researching!
