The HSU Library suggests the following websites as helpful research resources for you:

  • Library of Congress Digital Collections. The Library of Congress has made digitized versions of collection materials available online since 1994, concentrating on its most rare collections and those unavailable anywhere else. The Library provides one of the largest bodies of noncommercial high-quality content on the Internet.
  • The New York Times - Times Topics. Each topic page collects all the news, reference and archival information, photos, graphics, audio and video files published on topics ranging from avalanches to medical marijuana
  • Pew Research Center. Pew Research Center is a nonpartisan fact tank that informs the public about the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world. We conduct public opinion polling, demographic research, content analysis and other data-driven social science research. We do not take policy positions.
  • The World Factbook (CIA). The Factbook provides information on the history, people, government, economy, energy, geography, communications, transportation, military, and transnational issues for 267 world entities.
