Bibliographic Research Session at Poynter Library





In addition to their presidential campaign internships, all students in the Road to the White House are conducting in-depth research about a specific presidential campaign. Students will deliver a short presentation to the seminar about their research findings during Week 11 of the semester.

Students benefitted from a bibliographic instruction session with reference librarian Jim Schnur at Poynter Library during Week 2 of the semester (January 19).

In addition to sharing tips with our students about how to access materials about presidential campaigns and elections, Mr. Schnur shared with them an example of a primary source from our library's collection -- a handwritten letter by President George Washington.

These are the presidential elections that students will be studying:

The Election of 1800: DEPASQUALE
