Welcome to the research course guide for Native American History. This guide is a good place to start for primary sources you will need to locate for your final paper, whether those are those are physical primary sources from our own Special Collections or digital primary sources from a database -- or a mix of the two. This guide is also a good place to start for secondary sources which you are also required to find for your paper to help you write your introduction, and give historical context, to your primary sources.
Just a few words about research that you can either heed or ignore: seen holistically, these different types of sources make up the scholarly conversation. Your research paper, responding to your topic and the sources you locate, is also part of the scholarly conversation. What you find in your sources may alter the trajectory of your research. In sum: research is an art, not a science, and as such it is not linear.
Please remember that I and other librarians are here to help you. Don't hesitate to contact me or make an appointment.
