HIST 150: Unlearning US History (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. 

Keyword searching

In these databases, start with basic keyword searches. If you get too many results, try different keywords or narrow your search to "title" or "Abstract" searches.
