United States History: Intro

Resources for researching US history at PSU Library.


Woman making American FlagThis research guide lists resources for researching United States history through the PSU Library and beyond. History majors and grad students should find this guide particularly useful, as I've attempted to be comprehensive in the list of primary source databases. If you are studying history outside of the US, please look at the main History & Historiography Research Guide. I'll be adding additional topical guides in the months ahead.

If you have suggestions for databases, websites, or other sources to add to this guide, please contact me. 


Note: The images throughout this guide are drawn primarily from open source collections in the public domain. You may find useful content from these websites for your own research.
