The Writing Center has created this site to help answer some of the more common questions that students have when writing papers in the discipline of history.
Whether you are uncertain about your thesis statement, the formatting of your assignment, or how to cite your research, you can find helpful tips and examples, as well as links to research resources, to use while writing your assignment. Please explore our site using the tabs and drop down menus above.
We encourage you to speak with your instructors if you are unclear about major elements of your assignment; the resources on this page are intended to be used to help you brush up on your skills. This page was developed by Writing Center tutors, with input from the SIUC faculty.
Our tutors are working to add LibGuides for more disciplines. If you would like to suggest the addition of a certain discipline, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
