History : New Republic --U.S. 1787-1824: Overview

Welcome UAFS Researchers

The guide highlights resources useful for the study of American history during the time period of 1787-1824  (New Republic).  The tabs in the guide provide active links to databases, online catalogs, web sites, and  information on citing sources.  


U.S. Capitol, 1814


"Drawing shows the ruins of the U.S. Capitol following British attempts to burn the building; includes fire damage to the Senate and House wings, damaged colonnade in the House of Representatives shored up with firewood to prevent its collapse, and the shell of the rotunda with the facade and roof missing."   Author:  George Munder, Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.  This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. Such reproductions are in the public domain in the United States


Multisearches are similar to GOOGLE searches.  They retrieve a lot of information quickly regardless of the source and the format.  Results from multisearchesh must generally be narrowed by publication date range, type of document, additional keywords or subject limiters.  

Use multisearches at the beginning of research for a discovery process.  After this, then focus more narrowlyl and target individual databases as necessary.
