Research guidance and support for HIS-200 Applied History research assignments.

Primary Sources


Consider using search terms like Voting Rights Act, Civil Rights movement, voting rights, African-American, etc. as you explore the library's subscription databases and the selected outside websites with quality digitized primary source collections. If you can identify any key figures in the movement, you can use their names as keywords as well. Keep in mind that many databases and websites will also have a date filter that you can use to ensure that you are looking at the right time period in history.
