In 2015, the American Historical Association introduced a new slogan: "Everything has a history." The study of history is the foundation for a complex understanding of the world. It offers a rich view upon the developments that have shaped the society we live in; it helps us understand distant cultures; it provides a set of rigorous tools for understanding changes and continuities over time; it offers a high perspective to make sense of the tumult of current events.
Whether you are working on your first paper for a Hist 101 course, are deep into your independent study, or are simply interested in learning more about history as a field of study, this LibGuide will introduce you to some of the key resources we have that support the discipline at Wooster.
The content for this guide has been generated by the History Department (Dr. Christina Welsch and Zdena Sinkhorn '22).
