What's in the Guide


Welcome to the SSU History Research Guide!

Conducting history research can take many paths. A few hints before you begin:

                  1. What is your instructor asking you to do -- keep this in mind as you look for resources?
                  2. What kinds of sources are required and what is off limits?
                  3. Develop multiple strategies around:
                    • Dates 
                    • People
                    • Specifics
                    • Types of resources
                  4. Remember -- looking for information is only part of what you must do.  You must also leave plenty of time for writing and, if necessary, to work on a presentation.
