Your Research Librarian has put together a guide for you to help you research time periods. This guide will be helpful when finding information about the 1930s.
This guide contains an extensive variety of resources that will allow you to explore accurate and credible information.
During your time at Ringling you will be expected to present on a wide range of topics and the expectation is that strong research is a part of your design. We're expecting to see academic resources and not just sites you found using Google.
Follow the instructions below:
1) Find Books
Use this page to find books about culture and where to find them. This guide has been separated by subject.
This is where you'll find a majority of information for your topic. There are a multitude of databases available. You'll also be able to find information about culture, art, and social issues.
Reference resources are great for providing general information. Because of how concise these resources are, they are time savers.
4) Find Images
You'll need to have images for your presentation, and there are two very good resources to help you find ones that visually represent your topic.
Here's where you can schedule your group to meet with a Research Consultant at the Library.
