History Research Guide

Getting Started

Begin your search with reference works to find background information about a topic, other scholarly material, and additional keywords to further your research.

Using Catalyst, you can do a simple keyword search for your topic and narrow down your results to "reference entries" on the left hand side, after you have run a search. This will allow you to discover  reference articles by name and the encyclopedias where those can be found.
