New Orleans: Place, Meaning, and Context (UNH Durham): New Orleans Resources

An honors inquiry course that uses a rigorous interdisciplinary and participatory approach to studying America's most misunderstood city.

Digital Public Library of America

One of the newest, most exciting, and open source discovery platforms is the Digital Public Library of America. It includes over eleven million items form America's libraries, archives, and museums. These include digitized books, photographs, and historical documents from the Smithsonian, the National Archives, major research universities, and digital consortia. Like the online offerings provided by the Library of Congress, these research collections continue to grow.


This library guide was created to support the study of New Orleans as part of AMST444B, New Orleans: Place, Meaning and Context.

Please use this guide to help develop your research. If you need additional assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me by phone, email, or Facebook. My office hours during the spring semester are Monday, noon-4pm, and online, Sunday night, from 8-11pm. I can also meet at other times to discuss your research needs or for one-on-one instruction on search strategies and sources.

I also serve as liaison to the History Department, so if you want to purchase or gain access to monographs, periodicals, media, or other resources that are not available at UNH, let me know and we'll determine the best strategy for connecting you with the information you need.

I welcome your suggestions for changes or additions to this guide, as well as those geared towards enhancing services provided by the UNH Library.
