As you probably know, history is quite an all-encompassing topic. There will never be ONE SPECIFIC PLACE to go to find everything you need about the history of one topic - that is not why this guide was created. This guide was created to help you find a number of different resources and resource types on historical topics from A to Z.
Click through the tabs, scroll through the boxes, and search through the databases and see what you can find. When in doubt, ask your librarian for help!
Finding basic reference material is an exceptional way to begin your research. Check out the following databases for reference material related to your topic(s).
Databases can be tricky. Some might sound like the exact right spot for you to search, only for you to find out that there is simply nothing there. That doesn't mean you should give up! Search through another database, change up your terminology, look at what it is you're actually searching for. Remember, if you need help always ask for it.
