Finding History is a practical and modern guide to research for history projects, helping students to sort through the available resources and technology. While the proliferation of information on the Internet has complicated the research process it is precisely because so much information is available that college and university professors expect to see projects using primary evidence and the best historical analysis. however, without instruction, many students are not even aware of the standard history sources that they should be using.

Finding History includes practical, step-by-step instructions for discovering historical evidence using library catalogs, databases, and websites. It simplifies and clarifies the research process so that students new to the experience may locate appropriate research material with the same skill as seasoned historians. This book addresses the information literacy skills defined by the American Library Association and the American Historical Association.
