This guide lists electronic and print resources that will be useful for researching labor and working class history at Cornell, including primary, secondary, and tertiary sources. 

Historians researching in this field are encouraged to contact The Kheel Center for expert advise on collections available at Cornell and elsewhere. The Kheel Center's continuing purpose is the preservation of original source materials relevant to the history of American labor unions, management theory as it applies to labor and industrial relations, and the history of employees at the workplace.
