This library guide provides support for students enrolled in HIST 330.

Secondary and Tertiary Sources

Once you have identified your object(s) of study or topic, the next step is to investigate how historians have written about it/them. That is: you will want to find sources that provide context and background that will help you explain why your object(s) or topic is important to study. This type of information is often found in books which can be located by the SU Library Catalog.
