Attention all students and scholars of history:
The library is currently holding a trial for the Proquest history database: History Study Center, which features a vast collection of primary and secondary sources for the study of history. It is suitable for a wide range of people, from first-year college students looking for quick and reliable facts on a historical topic, to researchers examining hard-to-find primary source texts.
History Study Center covers global history from ancient times to the present day. Content includes more than 40,000 documents and articles, 50 reference works in books, essays, journal articles, historical newspaper and magazine articles, maps, rare books, government documents, and transcripts of historical speeches, 3,000 images, video clips and links to 2,000 web sites. Study units offer editorially selected material on more than 500 historical topics.
