Librarians are here to help!
Research is an adventure. It's open-ended, exploratory, surprising, frustrating, and full of blind alleys and interesting side trips. It doesn't have to be lonely. Compare notes with your colleagues and take advantage of the friendly people sitting at the reference desk. We love to help you find what you're looking for.
This guide is a starting point in your understanding US history since the 1860s; don't hesitate to ask a librarian for further assistance.
