History: Databases

A guide to access the vast array of resources the Libraries has in relation to History.

Tips for Finding Articles

Use online databases to find articles in journals, newspapers, and magazines (periodicals). You can search for periodical articles by the article author, title, or keyword by using databases in your subject area in A-Z Online Databases

Choose the database best suited to your particular topic.

Ask at the reference desk if you need help figuring out which ones are best.

If the article full text is not linked from the citation in the database you are using, search for the title of the periodical in our Library Catalog This catalog lists the print, microform, and electronic versions of journals, magazines, and newspapers available in the library.
