Getting Started

This guide is designed to help you get started with your history research.  The River Campus Libraries provides access to a robust collection of history-related print resources and online databases, including many collections of primary source materials.

Start with the Scholarly Articles and Books and E-books tabs to find resources for any project.  Then, check out the "Research by Geography" tabs to find both primary and secondary sources relevant to a specific region.

If you have questions as you begin your research, please feel free to reach out  to me, Lara Nicosia (lara.nicosia@rochester.edu) – I'm the Liaison Librarian for History and I'm always happy to help!
