Hist 101_U.S. History to 1877: Research Resources


During the Library Orientation session for this class we showed you several possible resources for your assignments.

To find physical books for your research will want to search the Library Catalog.

To access electronic books you want to go to the EBSCO Ebook Collection.

To find general information about a subject and to help you form an opinion on a topic consider visiting Issues & Controversies in American History and U.S. History in Context.

To search for journal articles you may consider a number of databases such as EBSCO, where you can limit your search by selecting specific databases, JSTOR, and the Gale Access Collection.

Several of these databases will also supply you with primary as well as secondary sources.
