Collecting Oral Histories: Find Reference Resources

Reference Resources

Reference Resources can quickly provide you with background information about people, places, and/or events.  Prior knowledge about the time period, events, etc. can help provide a foundation on which oral history or primary research can be built.  This page provides information about just a few of the many resources at the STLCC Libraries. For help accessing these or other resources, contact a friendly librarian!

For more information about Reference Resources, see the 8 minute STLCC tutorial "Reference Resources"
