HIST 6000: Historical Methods and Research: What About Books?

[HIST|6000|Kyle Bulthuis]

Search Tips

Library Catalogs

Use a library catalog to find books by author, title, or subject. NOTE: Searching by SUBJECT requires an understanding of the Library of Congress Subject Headings.  It is often better to first search using KEYWORDS first and then narrow your search using the subject headings found in the catalog record of books that seem to be right on topic.

Note on Book Reviews

Book reviews can be useful to help you boil down or see the flaws in an author's argument. To locate book reviews, search for the title of the book in one of the research databases or full text journal collections on the Finding Articles tab of this guide.
