Gill St. Bernard's Upper School Library: American Studies Research Assignment

Library Resources


The library provides access to a number of different kinds of resources. Some types of sources will be better depending on your topic.

If you have chosen a person, a great way to start is to read a short biography (1-2 pgs), either on a database or in a book. This allows you to get a sense of who, when and maybe why the person created what they did. 

If you need assistance finding sources, the librarians are available to help.The list of databases is below.

Databases for this project

Use the databases to find information about your topic. Some database will be better for your topic that others. Try more than one. If you need assistance the librarians are available to help.
