Historical Research With the ULS Library

Holding a number of primary source collections in print for Lutherans in the United States is only a small piece of the resources available to our students. The Library has acquired electronic access to a number of 19th century primary source newspapers and magazines through Accessible Archives  and through the American Antiquarian Society Periodicals, 1684-1912  collections. These resources provide a wealth of first-hand accounts in the 19th century, on issues such as Women's Suffrage, Slavery, Abolition, and the Civil War. In addition, a variety of magazines focused on domestic life, are included, as well! Take a look at the tabs above to learn more about how to access and what's included in these resources.

Tools for Citing Your Research

We recommend that you purchase the 7th edition (or newer) of A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (Turabian) at the beginning of your studies at ULS so that you can refer to it every time you are completing a research paper.

If you need to cite something more complex, you can also refer to Chicago Manual of Style Online , as Turabian is a simplified version of Chicago.
