HIST 236: Modern Germany: Resources

Style Guide

Library Catalogs

Interlibrary Loan

To obtain articles in journals which our library does not own you must place Interlibrary loan requests online. If the journal is in another Consort or Ohiolink library you will normally receive a PDF file of the article in a week. If the journal is not in either Consort or Ohiolink it may take longer for our staff to locate a copy elsewhere in the country. Please allow yourself plenty of time when requesting a copy of a journal article.


Write a 6 page “portfolio paper” on a theme or issue raised by our class readings.   Using the library’s resources, you will find 3 scholarly articles about that theme and use the articles as the basis for your paper. The entire “portfolio” will be handed in: a description of the theme with the assignments it was drawn from, copies of all three of the scholarly articles, as well as the student’s own paper. 

History Journal Databases

The databases below provide access to both full-text online and citations only to scholarly journal articles.  A 'citation' is the information you will need to locate an article in a specific volume of a journal, including the author's name, the title of the the article, the title of the journal, the volume number, the issue number, and the page number(s) of the article.  

For example:

Title: Turk and Jew in Berlin: The First Turkish Migration to Germany and the Shoah.
Source:Comparative Studies in Society & History. Apr2013, Vol. 55 Issue 2, p330-355.

Use the link to CONSORT, in the left column, to determine if Kenyon owns a print journal you may need to locate in the bound periodicals or request via OhioLINK.  If you plan ahead, you may use Interlibrary Loan to request articles you are interested in reading.
