National History Day in Arizona 2003 Theme Supplement: Rights and Responsibilities.
Goen, Wendi, Comp.; Devine, Laurie, Comp.
Arizona's archives, libraries, and museums contain a wealth of source material that can be applied to local, regional, and national topics pertaining to the 2003 National History Day theme, rights and responsibilities. Repositories from around the state share ideas and resources that are available to National History Day students. So that students' first archival research experience can be a positive one, the booklet seeks to make them aware of the following: research must be done on-site; most archival repositories require researchers to use a pencil when taking notes; students need to develop specific research questions; students need to credit the institution that owns the items; and students need to call repositories to make appointments. The booklet is divided into 20 sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Using the Internet to Conduct Research"; (3) "Vocabulary"; (4) "Rights and Responsibilities Theme Statement"; (5) "Preparing Your National History Day Entry"; (6) "Special Considerations for Competition Categories"; (7) "Contacts"; (8) "Translations, Awards"; (9) "Suggested Topics"; (10) "Arizona Historical Society, Southern Arizona Division"; (11) "Arizona State Archives"; (12) "Department of Archives and Manuscripts, Hayden Library, Arizona State University"; (13) "Mesa Room, Mesa Public Library"; (14) "Mesa Southwest Museum"; (15) "National Archives and Records Administration, Pacific Region"; (16) "Special Collections and Archives, Cline Library, Northern Arizona University"; (17) "SRP Research Archives and SRP Heritage"; (18) "Sharlot Hall Museum"; (19) "Tempe Historical Museum"; and (20) "Proposed Student Timeline".
