Welcome to the research course guide for "Pompeii and the Cities of Vesuvius!" This guide will help you find articles, books, and archeological site reports for your Wikipedia articles.
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, any other librarian, or make an appointment.
When available in a database, use the green button to determine whether the libraries have an article or book or to link to Interlibary Loan (Illiad) to request materials not at the Libraries.
