While books are very important, historians also publish their work in articles in academic journals. And the easiest way to find journal articles is to search a bibliographic database that covers your topic. You can search for periodical articles by the author, title, or keyword by using databases in your subject area.
Ask at the reference desk if you need help figuring out which ones are best.
If we don't have the book or article you need, we can get it for you! Go to Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to request an item.
For students, faculty, and staff, the ILL service is free.
