The American 1890's: Find Web Resources

A Course Specific Guide to Library Research for HIST 385: The American 1890's

Suggested Web Resources

Evaluating Sources

The Web can be a valuable source for historical research, however, websites should never be relied on as your sole source of information. Sources found on websites should enhance your research when used in conjunction with journals, books, and media. Most webpages do not undergo a lengthy editing process; they can be created quickly and easily, and there is no quality control process to ensure their accuracy. In short, a website can look very professional but still contain inaccurate and biased information.
