For Students

Need help with homework or doing a research project?  See how the Historical Society of Pennsylvania can help.  Find out how to start your research online, and what to do when you are ready to visit HSP.  We have primary sources, hints on how to use and cite them, information on National History Day, and more.  Our after-school Student Mentor program provides a "research buddy," thanks to the support of Enterprise Holdings Foundation.
