    Hum. 3 and Persepolis

    Dear Hum. 3, Great to see you throughout this week!   Here’s the research guide we looked at; your mini-library for finding context and historical background related to Iran in the 1970’s.   Want to see Iran from the 1970’s?  The library’s subscription to the AP Image database (12 million images) can help with that.  I would recommend using the Advanced Search feature to limit the date range to the needed decade.

    Dear Hum. 3,

    Great to see you throughout this week and last! Here’s the direct link to your 1950’s Social History research guide.   Thanks for asking such great questions! Do we have to cite images?  – Yes, & the library purchases Noodletools to help with that if you like. Are items from the 1950’s primary sources? – Yes again! Can we access library collections from off-campus? – And, yes!  Simply visit vpn.sps.edu to log in when off campus.
