    Welcome!

    Welcome to the guide for Honors!

    I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research for the Honors 1000: City One seminar. I have assembled a core collection of resources available through the Wayne State University Library System, as well as high quality, freely available web resources. This guide is a collaborative work-in-progress, developed with the suggestions and feedback from students and faculty in Honors.

    I am available by appointment to assist students and faculty with research related to Honors. You may also contact me to schedule research workshops for classes or to suggest items for purchase.

    The guide consists of several pages (tabs) detailing our resources in these areas:

    • Books & Background
      This page is good for papers 1 and 2 where you will need information on Detroit, background information on ethic groups, urban history and culture, to help write about your character and  your Detroit site.
    • Articles
      This page will help you in finding articles for paper 2 and 3. Databases for locating scholarly articles are listed here as well as links to historical newspapers that can contain articles or visuals to serve as primary sources.
    • Web Resources
      Links to digital collections that can contain images for primary resources, such as the Virtual Motor City, or the American Memory Collection from the Library of Congress. Also links to internet resources helpful for researching Detroit history.
