HIS 400--Voyages of Exploration (Urban): Home

Research guide for Elizabeth Urban's Fall 2016 HIS 400 course.


This guide is meant to help you through your final HIS 400 project.  Using the tabs at the top you can find Books and Articles (secondary sources) as well as primary sources.  The links on this guide are not exhaustive but provide good places to start.  If you get stuck or lost, use the contact information on the Library Information Box to ask me a question anytime.

Good luck!



Not sure where to start?  Try OneSearch!  It searches the library catalog, databases, as well as some freely available sites, somewhat like Google.  This does mean a large number of results, sometimes 100,000's, but it can lead to different, diverse materials--even primary sources!  Try it and use the limiters on the left hand side of the screen.
