This page's organization is based on the history "world areas" described in the most current Whittier College catalog; the open-source external links within each section are arranged alphabetically. Please note that these links are not at all exhaustive, but meant to serve as a starting point for research questions. For web links that take up more specific topics, please see if your course has its own LibGuide under the HIST course guides page, above.
Utilizing the Internet for research is an
increasingly accepted practice that can be a boon, but researchers must
still be wary. For important guidelines about using the Internet in
doing research, please read the "Guidelines for doing research with free Web sources" section in the Citations and guidelines page, above. For information about using primary sources you find online, see the ALA Reference and User Services Association's Using Primary Sources on the Web.
