Chicago Metro History Day

The Research Center is a popular destination for students doing History Day research. Students in grades 6-12 are welcome. Students in grades 6-8 must be accompanied by an adult.

For many History Day topics, we have bibliographies listing materials available here.  You can request a copy of a particular bibliography by sending an email to telling us which one(s) you are interested in. Put “bibliography request” in the subject line.


Getting Started

Search the online Encyclopedia of Chicago for background and bibliographies leading to primary source materials.
