Introduction to This Guide

This guide identifies electronic, print, audio, and video resources at Princeton that will assist you with research on a topic in American Studies. Emphasis is on databases that identify primary and secondary sources.The latter include scholarly, popular, and journalistic responses to the events, places, personalities, and artifacts of American civilization. Embedded in this page are links to research guides created by Princeton subject specialist librarians. We urge you to explore those fully as well, and to contact relevant experts as your research progresses.
