History 101 Database

The Department maintains a History 101 Theses Library in the front office (3229 Dwinelle) for your access. The library holds all papers with High Honors and Highest Honors designations dating back to 2005. Due to library capacity limitations, papers designated either Honors or non-Honors are purged after five years. When you come to review a particular thesis, please have your Cal ID card with you and plan to stay in the front office while you review the paper, as theses are not to leave the front office. While you are encouraged to take hand-written notes, theses may not be photocopied, photographed, or marked up in any way.
