The Reign of Terror

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.  You can search the Subject term "Revolutionaries" to find books about Revolutionary leaders from other countries and other eras. 
  • 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," etc. to your keyword search term.
  • Most books about French History are found in the "DC" section of the Library.
