PZ HIST 150 History of New Orleans /U. Willoughby / SP 2024

Your Assignment and This Guide

Welcome to the research guide for your course, The History of New Orleans.

This guide is intended to help you find sources for your final project, whether they are physical primary sources from Special Collections or digital primary sources from a database of a web site -- or a mix of the two. It will also help you find secondary sources which you are required for your paper to help you write your introduction and give historical context to your primary sources.   Please note that the Library has many more databases that are listed here; to explore other databases, please browse the subject guides listed below.

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.
