This guide provides links to databases, digitized collections, and other information sources useful for this course. Your librarian is Gina Bastone, and you can contact her for help using these resources, as well as one-on-one research consultations covering your specific essay topics.
Many of these databases are tricky to search effectively, so please do not hesitate to ask for help!
Below are the important primary resources and reference works. The first set in the list are subscription-based and behind a paywall. You have access through the UT Libraries and will need to login with your EID and password. The others are open and freely available, and we have provided the links.
If you need more clarity on what defines primary sources and reference sources, refer to the "About Primary & Reference Sources" page.
Don’t forget to supplement with books and ebooks in the UT library, and your standard web wits, including Google Maps and Google Books. Resources on the web are always expanding––if you locate something so tremendously helpful that you think it should be on this go-to resource list, please email Prof. Barchas with your finding.
