Use the Secondary Source Types chart above to help you determine what kind of source your group was assigned. More importantly, prepare to briefly show the class the source and describe how you came to that conclusion.
Here are some guiding questions:
DATABASES FOR HISTORICAL RESEARCH
Which resource/database on the History Subject guide….
…includes only scholarly, peer reviewed journals?
…allows you to enter years to limit your search historical time periods?
...includes full-text coverage of journals from the earliest volume through the previous 2-5 years?
….is a combined search of all CalU databases. Besides journal, magazine, and newspaper articles, what types of item results can be found through this “database”?
…allows you to search and request books from academic libraries across Pennsylvania, and some beyond? What number do you need in order to log in to it?
Use the resources on the History Library Guide to locate these resources.
- Is it a book, journal article, or other type of source?
- Which database(s) did you use to locate the source?
- Is it available in full-text online, in print in the library, or would you have to request it from another library?
