Key Research Tips:

  1. Use relevant bibliographies.
    Once you have found a good article or book on your topic, check for citations to relevant primary and secondary sources.

    Spelling, word choice, and geographic names may have been different during the time period you are researching. Use these words in your searches, particularly when finding primary source documents.

    Also: remember to try "World War I," "World War, 1914-1918," and "First World War."
     
  3. Ask questions.
    Don't hesitate to ask a librarian or your professor for assistance with finding and analyzing sources.
