The Library Catalog

  • Unless you know the title and/or author of the book you are looking for, history topics should be searched by Keyword to maximize the number of references to a topic.
  • Another way to search is to browse by Subject.  A subject search is good option if you are trying to narrow down an overly broad topic.  For example,  United States History Civil War 1861--1865 is broken down into 208 subtopics.  For the entry United States History Civil War 1861 1865 Sources, 16 books are listed. 
  • The word "sources" appearing next to an entry is usually a good indication that the text is at least in part a primary source.  You can increase your chances of turning up primary sources by adding terms such as "sources," "letters," "diaries," "personal narratives" etc. to your keyword search term.
