Where to Start

IUCAT, the IU Libraries online catalog, and WorldCat, the combined catalogs of majority of US libraries are great places to start your research. When in IUCAT, use Advanced Keyword search and include "Indiana--History," "Immigrants--Indiana—History," or "Indiana--Emigration" and "Immigration--History" as subject terms (Do the same in WorldCat).
