Remaking America: Overviews & Reference Sources

This guide will be a resource to find sources for your Remaking America research project.

Why use overviews?

Topic overviews are crucial when you are starting your research. A good overview should spark curiosity and lead you to find a person, idea, or question that may end up becoming your research topic. The idea here is to start by reading a broad topic overview (i.e. cold war, the environment, women's rights).
