History 498B: Histories of Sexuality

A guide to library sources for your research paper. Also reviews some basic library research concepts that should have been covered in your History 200 course.

Subject Specialist Librarians

Subject specialist librarians are eager to assist you with your library research, and in most cases can save you a lot of time, especially if you meet with them early in order to plan out your research strategy.

Subject specialist librarians recognize the interdisciplinary, collaborative nature of historical research, and they encourage you to meet with any librarian whose area of expertise overlaps with your research. For example, if you are researching the political history of queer America, you should meet with both the History Librarian AND the Political Science Librarian.
