Rau’s Rome


This is a bare bones page on which you will find suggested resources to help you with your topics related to the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. There are no descriptions or images because It is up to you to determine if the sources you choose to use are valuable or not – and why.


Print Resources

First, we want to put in a plug for books. We have a good collection of books on Ancient Rome, most of which can be found in the 937s. Be sure to take a look. If you use books, remember that our library is for grades 6 -12, and what was good for 6th grade is not as good for you now.


Online Resources

Second, library databases. We subscribe to many different databases for you. These are collections of materials that usually started life in print and have been made available online. If you are using these from off-campus, you will have to use the password link to gain access. Here are a few that might be useful:

Second and a half, the library also subscribes to image databases. As your project involves finding images for a presentation, these (copyright cleared) sites are a good place to start. You will need the citation information for you images, too, so take note.


General Websites

Finally, here are some websites that you might want to look at as you do your research:

You will use NoodleTools for your annotated bibliography. You can find the link in the column to the right.

Good luck!
