The first and best place to find books about your topic is the library's catalog.
Helpful tip: Do a search and choose an item that looks helpful. Then click on Full View and use the Subjects to find more items about the same topic. Just click on the subject term, and you will be brought to an alphabetical list of terms. Clicking on any of these will take you to all the resources about that topic.
Research in History
This is a brief guide to some of the major library and Internet resources for research in History. Remember that depending on your topic, resources in other subject areas may be useful. If you want more resources or assistance using these, please set up a personal research session to meet with a librarian.
