The Decades Project

Books are the best for this kind of research! Browse on the shelves around 973 and 974, especially in the reference section. Also look for biographies of those who were president during your decade. We also have magazines--Time, Newsweek, National Geographic-- back to the late 1960s!

Databases will help big time! Many resources are available on the home page of this wiki, and through the public library. This is an excellent chance for you to do research from home, in your jammies. Ask the librarian for a username and password, or use your own Delaware County Library card.


Another option you may not know about are ebooks. We have several ebooks available through the Gale Virtual Reference Library. Three titles of particular interest to this project are American Decades, Bowling, Beatniks, and Bell-bottoms and The Sixties in America Reference Library.
