This guide is designed to assist History students on the Oakland campus with their research in U.S. history.

About this Guide

This guide is designed to assist History students on the Oakland campus with their research in U.S. history. One will find the resources needed to search for:

  • primary sources
  • journal articles
  • databases
  • web resources

In addition there is also a feature for those needing assistance with citations, from how to cite a certain type of resource to using citation software such as Mendeley and Endnote. If you should have questions or need assistance with your research, please contact me. I'd be happy to meet with you and show the finer points of the resources listed.
