Researching Your Topic

This research guide is for your use in History of Epidemics in American History, HIST 771. Follow the tabs along the top to access materials and get tips for effective research. As always, I encourage you to take advantage of ALL the resources - print and electronic - and ask for help from the reference librarians at the Gelman or Himmelfarb Library. As a rule of thumb, if you spend 15 minutes looking for material unsuccessfully, it is time to call the reference desk.

It is important that you meet with your GTA before the deadlines.
