Doing research for your Time Travel Scrapbook

1. Identify your era or historical period.
2. Gather background information to identify key events, locations, people, etc. (try the Oxford Reference Online, Wikipedia--don't cite this!, Encyclopaedia of the Hellenic World, Google, and other sources that give overviews).
3. Search for those specific events, locations, and/or people in an online collection (try the World Digital Library, EKU's online search, Google Scholar, or an article database).

*Evaluate your sources!

When searching for primary sources, consider what type of document/item will help illustrate aspects of the time period you are researching. (Diaries, letters, newspaper articles, government documents, photographs, art, etc.)
