There were quite a few younger-than-usual visitors at the University of Iowa Main Library today, as students from several middle schools visited to conduct research for their National History Day projects. National History Day is a nationwide program and contest in which students conduct primary and secondary research on a historical topic related to the contest theme.
With this year’s theme of “Rights and Responsibilities in History,” we had a handful of little researchers visiting the Iowa Women’s Archives. Many IWA collections relate to topics of rights and responsibilities:
- Collections Relating to African American Women
- Collections Relating to Woman Suffrage Movement
- Collections Relating to Peace and Pacifism
- Collections Relating to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Persons and LGBT Issues
View all collections in the Iowa Women’s Archives on our website, where you can browse the topical list and search by subject. You can also search the UI collection guides, including Special Collections, University Archives, and IWA.
