History - HSTR 499: Senior Capstone Class (WWI): Primary Sources on the Web

This guide was prepared to assist students doing research in Dr. Rust's capstone class on World War I social history and the experiences of the common soldier.


Many libraries, museums, and archives have digitized their historic documents and have placed them online in digital libraries.  This page includes links to some large collections that may be useful in your research.  Contact Cheryl Hoover if there is another excellent digital library that should be added to the list.
