There are a number of sources that are relevant to historical inquiry that are held in the UCA Libraries. A first step in locating these resources must be the Catalogue. This will bring up both print and electronic resources, including eBooks and journal articles.
You can find out more about searching, accessing, finding, evaluating and referencing from the relevant LibGuides. This presentation may also help to remind you of the importance of historical inquiry.
It is difficult to select key databases for history as if you are studying the history of medicine or the history of finance, for example, you will have to search the medical databases or the databases that index business and finance journals. However, as a start, it is recommended you begin your search on the Library Catalogue and then search the individual database listed below:
ACADEMIC SEARCH COMPLETE - This is a multi-disciplinary database (which is mostly full-text) which indexes history journals and some popular magazines and newspapers.
JSTOR (Arts and Sciences) databases provide full-text access to thousands of articles from archived academic journals. Date coverage varies by individual journal title, but a typical coverage range is from the beginning of the journal until 5 years ago.
