HIST 3820 - Contemporary China: A History of the PRC

Course guide produced for HIST 3820



This course guide is intended to help you find and use primary sources for your term paper. The guide is split into two main sections:

  1. Primary Source Search Tools: Links to resources that you can use to find primary sources related to the history of the People's Republic of China, in three categories:
    • Databases that the Library has subscribed to or purchased
    • Digital collections that the Library has produced on its own
  2. Citing Primary Sources: A guide on how to properly cite the primary sources that you find in Chicago style

Use the menu on the right to navigate the guide. Feel free to contact me directly if you need any help finding sources for your assignment. My contact information is in the box on this page.
