Sources documenting life and events in 20th-century America
The use of source documents offers students a
direct glimpse into the past. But without context,
these sources can confuse as often as illuminate.
SIRS Decades places these resources into a
relevant framework for understanding that
enriches both the content and student
understanding of the material.
SIRS Decades features more than 5,000 hand-
selected primary and secondary source
articles highlighting key events, movements,
people, and places in 20th-century America.
Coverage includes documents, letters and
memos, editorial cartoons, streaming video,
websites, photographs, maps, advertisements,
and published articles--some available from
the UMI® microfilm vault for the first
time in digital format.
Our SIRS editorial staff carefully selects material based on its relevancy to the topic, range of viewpoints, authoritativeness, readability, and
extent of coverage to ensure that users receive "best of" content.
