At Ball State, you will have access to tons of resources for you to do research with.
Bracken Library holds more than 1.8 million volumes of books, periodicals, microforms, audiovisual materials, software, government publication, maps, musical scores, archival records, and other information sources. The library also houses the Helen B. and Martin D. Schwartz Special Collections and Digital Complex, a cutting-edge facility where you can access unique collections, view international broadcasts, and more.On top of that, Ball State has state-of-the-art technology, including a campus-wide wireless network, which means you can stay connected to our databases no matter what building you’re in. While on campus, you can do original research using the Sir Norman Angell Papers, the Stoeckel Archives (records of Muncie and Delaware County, Indiana), and the collection at the Center for Middletown Studies. Primary research also can be pursued at several readily accessible institutions in Indianapolis, Bloomington, Cincinnati, Columbus, and Chicago. The Richard Burkhardt Building, our department’s home, also houses the Social Studies Materials Center for students involved in the social studies program. Our faculty also has extensive research backgrounds. You can read some of their publications in the International Journal of Social Education, which is the oldest and longest-running publication on Ball State’s campus.
