History Library Research Guide: Articles and Books

Research guide for history students and majors

Best Bets for Finding Articles

Finding Print Books

Looking for Books? You can find books by using our online catalog or you may want to browse the shelf.  Print books are located in the "C to F" sections on the lower level and second floor of the library. Below is a high level view of the classification system. Clicking on the letters will open a more detailed description. Because history can be interdisciplinary, some books you need may be in a different section, like the religion section (Bs) for religious history, the art section (Ns) for art history, or the science section (Qs) for history of science and so on. Please ask a librarian if you need help locating books.

  • C to CT - General History
  • D to DX - World History and History of Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, etc. 
  • E to F - History of America and the United States
