Resources for History Majors

During your time at DSC, you will likely be asked to conduct some historical research and write some papers. Of course, if you are writing papers then you will also need to cite your sources. Practicing historians write a little differently than many other disciplines and they cite sources a little differently largely because of the fact that the events they write about happened in the past and they have so many sources to work with. The links on this page provide some useful information no matter what kind of projects your professors come up with.
