About this Guide

This site has been designed for students in Professor Stephen Shoemaker's Extension School graduate proseminar, SSCI E-100B.

The resources and strategies described on this page are specifically targeted: they represent our first best guesses at where you might find easy access to the scholarly and research literature on your immigration-related projects.

Remember that good research is often about following up on hunches, testing out a hypothesis and then seeing where else (or to what else) it leads. You may need to try several search combinations before you strike gold. 

Let me know if questions arise at any point in your project. We'll triage by email or set up a time to meet on Zoom for a personal consultation.

Enjoy your work! 

Sue Gilroy, Research Librarian, Lamont Library
