History 111/112

This guide should help students in History 111 and History 112 find the resources needed for annotated bibliographies and research papers.


Focused Database Searching

Using Google Scholar

Google Scholar is a search engine separate from Google web search. It can help you find academic journal articles for your college papers and projects, but it's important to be careful when using Google Scholar. Google Scholar will find articles for you, but it doesn't provide access. You may be asked to pay for access to articles. Google Scholar also doesn't vouch for the articles you find there. The articles you find may be of poor quality or even fake. Be sure to evaluate you Google Scholar articles and citations.

Don't pay for articles! If you want to use an article from Google Scholar, but it costs money, contact the Library or put in an Interlibrary Loan request (usually takes a week for article delivery)!

Interlibrary Loan (it's OK to take the full text filter OFF!)
