Dear Latin I,

By - Research & Instruction Librarian September 25th, 2014

Great to see you!

 

As you remember, there is a research guide containing curated library eCollections selected for this assignment.

 

Just getting started?  The Gale Virtual Reference Collection is a great place to get background information on various aspects of Ancient Roman culture, as is the eBook Daily Life in the Roman City (Greenhaven, 2004) found within the Ebsco Academic eBook  collection.

 

 

Looking for voices from the time?  Consider the eBook Voices of Ancient Greece and Rome (Greenwood, 2012) for documents created by Ancient Romans.

 Research questions?  Please be in touch!  Ms. Sanborn

Three new research guides are now available through the Ohrstrom blog – just in time to help with current research projects.

Ms. Sanborn has put together research guides for Middle Eastern Voices, the Humanities V Renaissance Artists research project, and the Latin I class.  The research guides contain helpful lists of Reference books, catalog search topics for  finding circulating books, citation examples, and database search tips.

You can access the research guides through the links in the Ohrstrom Blog sidebar to the left of this post (see image above) or through the main menu of the Ohrstrom Library website (ie., Research > Research Guides > Latin I).  Each research guide has a link to a PDF version of the guide for printing or downloading to your computer.
