History Day Resources

Help with your History Day project is only a click away at your library! There are lots of free resources on the library website which you can access from home - and you can also ask your library staff for personalized help!

Getting Started

  • History Day Resources: The resources here were collected by the MN Digital Library. The collection provides information on getting started with History Day, including developing a topic and organizing your research efforts. Also included are helpful links to national resources such as the History Day website and the Digital Public Library of America. Local resources, such as the Minnesota Historical Society, are also included.
