COLL 150: Consumer Revolution, Displaying Empire, and Imperial Nostalgia (Fall 2022)

Finding Articles

The Libraries have a LOT of e-journal subscriptions and hundreds of databases designed to help you find them. You can use PRIMO, the main catalog, to find interesting secondary sources (like articles!). For specialized  US history topics, you may want to try America: History and Life. Both work in a similar manner. 

Let's try searches

Just to get started, let's try "Great Britain" or "atlantic world" in America: history & life or Historical Abstracts. 
Pay attention to keywords suggested by the database.
Also remember, we already know Great Britain Consumption, and Consumers are good search terms

As an example, test "Great Britain" AND (Consumption OR Consumers) in databases as a subject search
