HISTORY

Introduction:

TC Library's Subscription Databases and the World Wide Web offer a large number of valuable sites to those studying in the fields of history and social sciences. We have here RECOMMENDED RESOURCES and have arranged them into two major categories: Databases and Websites: A Classified Library.  

For history books and other materials (print and electronic) in the Library collection, be sure to check our catalog.

How to Do History Research on the Internet  from net.Tutor provides a valuable introduction with which all history students should be familiar.  Includes a guide on evaluating information and resources and internet websites. A must for the serious student.  For social science-related educational links, including lesson plans and the teaching of social sciences to students, please see our "Links Library" page for education.   An extremely useful "e-zine" although no longer published as of 2005 for teachers/college instructors is "Teaching History Online."

Upon completion, Evans Digital will consist of more than 36,000 works and 2,400,000 images. "  A wealth of primary source material.

EXPANDED ACADEMIC ASAP, from Gale on Infotrac I, meets research needs across all academic disciplines and is TC's primary subscription database for current scholarly journals in the social science/humanities disciplines beyond business and education, news magazines, and newspapers - many with full text and images!

FINDARTICLES.COM is a  free index to full-text magazines which appear on the web (including a few not covered by the subscription databases noted here, e.g., History Today), is, surprisingly, overlooked on the links pages of most libraries . Not to be taken lightly, it is recommended.
