Onderzoekzoeksgids Richard Nixon

De Library of Congress heeft een onderzoeksgids over leven en werk van de Amerikaanse president  Richard Nixon gemaakt. De LOC heeft een hele serie van dit soort onderzoeksgidsen online staan.
The digital collections of the Library of Congress contain a number of items associated with Richard Nixon. This resource guide compiles links to digital materials related to Nixon such as photographs, political cartoons, and documents that are available throughout the Library of Congress Web site. In addition, it provides links to external Web sites focusing on Nixon and a bibliography containing selected works for both a general audience and younger readers.
De gids bestaat uit drie delen:
1. Library of Congress Resources
For example, using the much improved Prints & Photographs Online Catalog (PPOC) to find, “hundreds of digital images related to Kennedy such as prints, photographs, and political cartoons.”
Onderzoeks tip van resourcesgelf: Use the subject heading: Nixon, Richard M. (Richard Milhous), 1913 1994. You can find additional images but selecting the all search fields option and searching “Richard Nixon” as a phrase.

2. External Web Sites
An example of an external item would be a biographical article about Nixon from the Senate Historical Office.
 
3. Selected Bibliography
Includes works by Nixon; selected biographies; bibliographies; and books for young readers.
