HIST 7B : Rosie the Riveter (ROHO digital collection)

Doe Reference Collection | encyclopedias

Doe Library has the campus' major reference collection for the arts, humanities & social sciences. The Doe Reference Service is located on the second floor of the library and has a staffed desk to help navigate the collection (hours, info.).

If you need general information about a historical time period, encyclopedias are often a good place to get that context.

  • provide basic background information -- identify people, events, issues, agencies, etc.
  • knowing this information can help you narrow your search
  • background can help you use historical sources, providing context to their content

National Park Service

As noted on ROHO's website, the Rosie the Riveter project is in collaboration with the National Park Service.  The NPS has a website for their park in Richmond.  It includes an online exhibit of memorabilia and other content, that, while not your chosen source base, might provide useful background/context.
