EDCI 567: Teaching Social Studies in the Secondary School

Resources for the teaching of social studies and history

Selected Resources by History Librarian

Large Library Repositories: There are many libraries and archives that have digitized parts of their collections. Typically the collections digitized provide select examples and are far from comprehensive. Nevertheless, they may be useful for instruction and limited research.

George Mason University students and faculty have access to rich research collections. Some of the largest and most important of these collections are identified on the History and Primary Sources InfoGuide.

These guides include access to many library owned databases which include major research collections such as America’s Historical Imprints, American Periodicals, and Proquest Historical Newspapers. These guides are organized by primary source type (books/imprints, periodicals/newspapers, legal sources, and selected archival sources). The guides are organized by geographic region and in some cases by time periods.
