HSS 595 - Fashion in History: Introduction & Reference Materials

About this Guide and Using Reference Sources

Welcome to the HSS595 Fashion in History Guide!  The resources on this guide have been found in the collections at the OWHL, and on the free web, to help researchers find credible and relevant sources on the topic.  


The boxes below contain links to electronic reference sources.  These sources are where to begin your research process.  If you are on campus, you may look for print reference in the Garver Room of the OWHL.  Once you've taken notes from the short articles that will give you an overview, you will be better equipped to find secondary and primary sources on the following tabs.


The format of these reference sources is indicated in the blue box header as either "Reference Databases" OR "Reference E-Books".  If you need help finding reference sources, or citing them, please contact a librarian to chat on "OWHL Answers" below.
