Time to roll up our sleeves and dive into the past! This year the National History Day's theme is Rights and Responsibilities in History. Before you begin, make sure you review the research process. When you're ready, jump into your research with the primary sources listed below.
If you run into a question on the research process or need help finding sources on your topic, ask a librarian!
*Not everything in all of these will be a primary source. Evaluate your results carefully.
Mary archives, museums, and government offices have digitized parts of their primary source collections. Type your usual terms into a search engine (Google, Bing, etc.) and add one of the terms listed below.
You can also search for primary sources in any library catalog. Just type in your usual search terms and add one of the terms on the list. Try it out at one of the libraries below by clicking on their logo.
Some things you just can't find online. Luckily, we have many amazing museums, historical centers, and libraries in the Twin Cities that you can visit to find primary sources and ask questions of experts and librarians. This map shows you many of these places.
