Course guide for UNIV 200-03: Memory and Material of Slavery (Gosson/Scholnick)

Welcome to our research page!

Welcome to the research page for UNIV 200-03!  This page is a great starting place, but is by no means comprehensive.  I've placed a number of resources on here to get your group started, but you might also want to consider exploring the following:

  • -Other subject guides on the library's website.  Think about the academic subjects that your topic encompasses and explore the databases on those subject pages.  Make sure you are registered for Interlibrary Loan/Get It, as it will allow you to request any books or articles that Bucknell doesn't own.
  • -The Worldcat Library Catalog, from the search box above.  This will help you find books and other materials to give you background on your topic.
  • -Google's Advanced Search page.  This may help you find academic podcasts, videos of lectures from other universities, and so on.
  • -Search Spotify or iTunes/Apple Music for podcasts.
  • -Make a research appointment with Jason or with another subject librarian.  We can help you find the sources you need to complete any research project.
  • -Start your research EARLY and scaffold your approach.  This is not the kind of project that will allow last minute work.

Here is a worksheet that you can use to help you begin thinking about your research needs.  (It's a Google Doc -- BU login required, will prompt you to make a copy, which you can save in your own Google Drive and edit).
