Welcome to CSU Libraries!
We will cover:
- resources for time, place, and costume of various periods

We won't have time to cover everything that you might need to know in one class period, so please feel welcome to follow-up with me by scheduling an appointment, sending an e-mail, or giving me a call. My contact details are on the right side of the page.
Good luck with your research!
