Welcome to the Dragon's Guide


The dragon would like to introduce history majors (and any other interested parties) to the basics of historical research while using the particular resources of Philadelphia. Ultimately, the goal is to give you the skills to undertake original historical research.


The guide consists of a general overview to historical research, identifying particular tools available to Drexel students. As the dragon's duties permit, it will update and add to the available resources. Be patient; it's not easy for the dragon to leave the pedestal without people noticing.
