WISER: Sources for US History, Monday 12th May

On Monday 12th May, Jane Rawson will be presenting a WISER session on sources for the study of US History. The session will provide a useful overview of key resources available both locally and online, as well as delivering valuable information on the finding tools used to locate them.

Beginning with guidance on locating books, journals, articles and theses, the session will progress to an in-depth discussion of primary sources. A wide range of topics, periods and formats will be covered, with tips provided on how to start identifying the most useful online sources. Attendees will also be encouraged to look at sources which are of personal interest, with time provided for questions.

This WISER session will take place in the Abbot’s Kitchen training room at the Radcliffe Science Library, at 11am on Monday 12th May. The session is recommended as a good general introduction for those either starting their research on US topics or for those who wish to know more about the range of print, microfilm and electronic resources on offer.
