Core Resources


Definitely search both:

  1. Our library catalog, for books we have here
  2. WorldCat, for books other libraries have and will send here for you via Interlibrary Loan (ILL).

Definitely read the detailed tips on the Find Books page of this guide to most effectively use the catalog, WorldCat, and ILL.


Definitely search both:

  1. America: History & Life, for discovering articles from a greater number of history journals, which you might then read from whatever other database or print form, and for more search tools, including the Historical Period limiter.
  2. JSTOR, for finding articles from those journals for which we have full text available through the JSTOR database.

Primary Sources

Definitely do each of these:

  1. Look for the primary sources used and cited by your secondary sources.
    Mine the bibliographies
    of relevant books, articles, and dissertations.
  2. Look thoroughly in any possibly relevant digital, microform, or print collections described on the Primary Sources page of this guide or in the full Primary Sources guide.
  3. Search in our catalog and in WorldCat using subject terms and keywords described in the top left box of this guide's Primary Sources page.
