Databases are particularly useful for finding articles on your topic. While you can find titles of journals and newspapers in the Dacus Online catalog, you'll need to use an index to find articles. The databases below index hundreds of journals, as well as some other publications. Many of the results will be available in full-text - that is, you can get to the entire article. Others are citations or abstracts, which can lead you to the full-text.
Search tip: If you find a citation for an article that looks good, try searching for the name of the journal in the Dacus Online Catalog and see if we have the full-text available.
In addition to the America: History and Life Database, several other databases include information on U.S. history.
Newspapers can be another rich source of information about historical events, trends, politics, etc.
