Local Information

General Background

The library has books on communites and may be able to provide other resources. Don't forget the public libraries as well.

This subject heading: Columbus (Ohio) - History is a good start to see what is available.  However, while Otterbein has a few books on Columbus history, I would recommend going to the Columbus Metropolitan Library for more depth.
