Welcome to the guide for Labor Studies
I hope that you will find this guide a useful starting place for your research in Labor Studies. 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.
