History Day Research Help – Goldy Gopher to the Rescue!

Minitex, the University of Minnesota's Wilson Library, and the Minnesota Historical Society have created a short video to prepare students throughout the state to conduct History Day research at Wilson Library. Librarians from Minitex Reference Outreach & Instruction (ROI) and Wilson Library have been collaborating on History Day for the past six years. Each year, Wilson Library staff facilitates library visits for thousands of Minnesota middle and high school students. Meanwhile, Minitex's ROI unit visits libraries and classrooms to show teachers, librarians, and students how to use the Electronic Library for Minnesota (ELM) and the University Libraries' catalog (MnCAT) to do research for History Day and prepare them for their Wilson Library research trip.
