Overview of World History Resources

The library offers a variety of resources to help you find the materials you need to conduct research on World History, including books and ebooks, newspapers, journals and magazines, and primary source materials.

This guide provides you with a starting point for conducting your research but does not cover all the library's resources. We have selected resources that we believe will be the most helpful to most students.

It's important to remember when researching history that you don't neccesarily want to look at only history titles. Hisotry is played out in ecnomics, social movements, literature and other fields of studies. 

Databases and Web Resources - These databases and web resources are primarily focused on history and its allied disciplines.

Books - Find books and ebooks in the library's collection.

Primary Sources  - What are primary sources and how do you find them?
