CSW Research Affiliate Becky Nicolaides is working with the American Historical Association to gather information on Independent Scholars’ level of access to necessary library resources. Add your voice and help Dr. Nicolaides advocate for independent scholars!
Join Dr. Nicolaides on October 11 for a discussion on access to research resources — details here.
The American Historical Association is investigating access to research databases and other resources used by historians. Independent and unaffiliated scholars, as well as historians at smaller institutions often do not have access to subscription materials necessary for their work. We would like you to answer a few questions that will help us determine what we can do to help scholars with this problem. We are looking for responses from anyone who considers themselves a historian, regardless of AHA membership status, so please pass this survey on to your colleagues. Your responses will be extremely helpful to the AHA’s efforts to promote historical education and research, and we thank you for taking the time to help us gather this important information.
