The Library section of History 260 is designed to give History students an overview of the research process. During the sessions covering the use of the Library and information resources, we will discuss print and online sources to locate books and articles as part of a systematic research strategy. We will also discuss how to evaluate sources and how to use some of these sources for your Historiographic Essay. The end product of these sessions will be an Annotated Bibliography of sources you have explored for your Historiographic Essay.
