Hello. I am the librarian for the History Department. I know that writing your senior thesis  can be a real challenge, especially since you will need to identify and locate primary resources for your research project. 

This guide is divided into several sections that are designed to help you identify a variety of research materials. It will also provide guidance on locating items that are not available through Kraemer Family Library. Just click on the tabs to learn more about the wealth of resources and tools that the Library provides.

As you conduct research for this course,  consider visiting other academic libraries in the state. There are many electronic and print sources at other libraries that can only be accessed by going to the library where they are available. Search the websites of these libraries before you travel to determine what sources are available.  Links to regional libraries are available from the Kraemer Family Library web site.You also have reciprocal borrowing privileges at most academic libraries in the state. If you visit one of these libraries and find circulating materials that you would like to check out directly, you may do so.

Please contact me via email or telephone if you would like to make an appointment for a research consultation.
