Use this guide to help find interesting and relevant sources for your History 027 paper.

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.
  2. Search historically.
    Spelling, word choice, and geographic names may have been different during the time period you are researching.  So if you
    are searching for primary source documents, you may need to use these older spellings and terms to find relevant sources.

    And remember to try "World War I," "World War, 1914-1918," and "First World War" - all of these search terms may return relevant books and articles.
  3. Ask questions.
    Don't hesitate to ask a librarian or your professor for assistance with finding and analyzing sources.
