History Day Resources at IHRC

The IHRC has many digital collections available for use by History Day student researchers, as well as on-site archival and print collections. Read on for IHRC links to help you with this year's theme of "Revolution, Reaction and Reform".

Spotlight on Selected Sources has many online exhibitions for topics such as community-based service organizations, book arts, music among immigrant communities, political cartooning, pre-1965 immigration law reform debate, and other topics.

Read about the experiences of immigrants in their own words by studying Digitizing Immigrant Letters. Letters from Italian, Russian, Croatian, Latvian, Finnish and Ukrainian families reveal how they dealt with the major change of separation from loved ones. (Selected letters are translated into English.)

Other IHRC resources are available under links on the homepage for special projects, resources for educators and students, and community materials.

Thousands of images are available through the University of Minnesota's UMedia Archives . Search for historical materials for your History Day project online, and contact archivists at the University of Minnesota to make an appointment to come in person for your research.

The IHRC is one of many Archives and Special Collections at the University of Minnesota. For more resources, be sure to access materials through the University of Minnesota Libraries website.

Have a great research experience!
