Ancient History Research Guide is Complete!

by Sam Nyhus on 2021-05-03T11:11:19-07:00 in Library Science | Comments

Head Ninja Ethan Oldham has done it at last.

What a guy. You can see the benevolence glowing through that megawatt smile. What exactly, you ask, hath Ethan wrought? His magnum opus, the pièce de résistance of his work, the Ancient History Research Guide, is complete. NSA History students will forever owe Mr. Oldham a debt of gratitude. I will provide a brief preview of the guide, which can be found in its entirety under the "Research Guides" tab.

The guide consists of four main sub-guides: General Resources, Ancient Near East, Ancient Greece, and Ancient Rome. Most of the links in each sub-guide link to the Populi catalog records of physical resources at Tyndale Library, but a few are links to online resources. The advantage of this guide is that it presents over 730 (!) resources conveniently by subject in order to help you sift out the books that you need.

Below is a breakdown of each sub-guide and its subdivisions:

GENERAL RESOURCES

  • Writing History (resources on the methodology of writing a history paper)
  • Original Sources (ancient primary sources)
  • General and Reference Sources

ANCIENT NEAR EAST
