Finding Contextual (Who/What/Where/When) Information

As you work on your project, you may find you want to double check dates or find a little bit more information about a person. To do so, consider checking our reference material (dictionaries and encyclopedias) for short descriptions or our electronic journal subscriptions for longer discussions.

Reference Material

Journal & eBook Databases

For a selection of excellent journals and some e-books on various topics in global history, we recommend a few databases. Remember to explore these database "advanced search" options for date and other modifiers before you run your searches.
