If materials you are interested in are not yet digitized, you will need to set up a researcher account and visit the SCRC in-person. Do not fear! This is a simple process. For information about setting up your account, requesting materials, scheduling a visit, and requesting digitized materials, please visit this handy guide: Conducting Research at the SCRC
Welcome to your course guide for HIS 499 - Gender, Sex, and Family in U.S. History. This research guide is designed to provide you with archival collections, oral histories, and other related materials that may be of assistance when generating your research project ideas or to assist you in conducting effective research. The tabs at the top of the page link to a variety of resources related to the course topic.
I will also encourage you to set up an individual meeting or research consultation by using the "Email Me" button in the left column of any of these pages. This will be especially helpful in narrowing down your research topics and ideas, as well as to identify archival collections that will help you be successful in this course.
This video gives a brief overview of the role of archives in everyday and academic life.
