Historic Preservation: Home

A research guide to finding books, articles, and other resources in Historic Preservation


This guide is designed to help you research topics for your Historic Preservation classes. By clicking on the tabs at the top of each page, you can locate reference works and guides (for time-saving background material), appropriate databases (for magazine and journal articles), scholarly websites (that cover various aspects of the field), and class handouts (used in Historic Preservation library classes). Don't forget that you will have to cite and document the sources you use. For that reason, each page has a link to the UMW Libraries' guide to Citing Resources.

Have any questions? Need help? Please feel free to contact me and we'll set up a research appointment (see box at right).  I look forward to working with you!
