Your paper will be 4-5 pages in length, and you will need at least four sources.  Be sure and review the Primer in Boolean Logic  tab on the Green Library welcome page; it will guide you through the process of narrowing your research terms in searching for online database sources.

Basic ways to find scholarly articles for historical research


How do historians do research?

The study of history offers students an opportunity to investigate the past, gain perspective on the present, and develop their critical faculties and their imaginations. History provides an integrating principle for the entire learning process, and students gain a sense of human development and interrelatedness and an understanding of social processes. History demands a confrontation with the mythologies and achievements of our own society and with the reality of "otherness," both at home and in the larger world.
