Historical Research: How do I find the good stuff?

Currently Offered Sessions

No sessions currently scheduled.


Many librarians work with students and patrons who are conducting historical research whether it’s for a History Day project, genealogy, or college-level research for a particular course. Join us as we highlight specific resources in ELM, Minnesota Reflections, and the Digital Public Library of America and tips on how to find them quickly. We’ll take a close look at available secondary and primary resources that can be gleaned from readily available resources as well as suggestions for discovering credible digital collections.
