One of the joys of majoring in history or political studies is the ability to immerse oneself in the past through research.
Southern Adventist University's McKee Library is an excellent on campus source for research. In addition to its collection of circulation books, magazines, and online databases, the library is home to the Thomas Memorial Collection, featuring more than 3,600 volumes on Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War.
The history and political studies faculty have also collected a list of helpful websites for beginning research projects.
