Modern History

This is a guide for sources available for historians at Boston College targeted for professionals.


This is a growing list of documentaries on modern world history. Note that streaming licenses are usually for one or three years, which means that links can fail.

If you'd like assistance finding a documentary on specific topics or would like a title included, write your librarian Dr. Bee Lehman
