History Pathfinders

Timothy Burke, history professor at Swarthmore, has a list of tips for undergraduates looking for primary sources. It's nice to see faculty specifically encouraging concrete information literacy skills, and these are tips that librarians could incorporate into their own pathfinders for history topics.

I play WoW with Tim. He's both a brilliant dude, and a skilled Rogue to boot. I wish I had more time to read his blog, as it never fails to make me think.

I could tell from the blog that Burke was a WoW player, but I didn't know that you played together! You are well connected - first the FCC, now Swarthmore.
