About the New Hampshire History Sources Listed in This Section
Sources are listed at the ends of the instructional outcomes for each focus question and in Appendix F. Not all are appropriate for K-6 students, but more advanced titles have been included for teacher reference.
Titles that are out of print have been included. While not uniformly available everywhere, they can be found in local libraries, through inter-library loan, in private libraries, at yard sales, and at book sales. An "N" indicates which sources are available through the New Hampshire Historical Society's Tuck Library in Concord, New Hampshire. Call (603) 225-3381 for information.
An * indicates those sources that are available at the Museum of New Hampshire History Store. The store has a continuously updated and expanded stock of books, cassettes, and videotapes.
A useful annotated reference is the loose-leaf book, New Hampshire History Resources for Teachers: A Guide, prepared by a committee of educators and edited by Linda Betts Burdick, then Director of Education at the New Hampshire Historical Society. A copy of this was sent to every public elementary school in the state -- check your school library. This is also available from the Museum Store and at the NHHS Website, (http://newww.com/org/nhhs). For information and mail orders, call (603) 226-3189.
