HIST 496: Protest, Unrest, and Change in American History

Primary Sources, archives, digital collections

Worldcat and its subsets (see below) can be used to find archival collections; use specific names, events, or time periods to avoid being overwhelmed by extraneous results. Catalog records of archives can be detailed and if you are lucky will contain a link to a finding aid (only rarely will a catalog record contain a link to full text).  Examples of good finding aids, prepared by the UMBC archivist, can be found on the Special Collections archives page.
