History Resources: Reference Books & Websites

Resources for students of History.

Getting Started

Reference sources can help you to begin your research and guide you in your approach to a new topic. Encyclopedias and biographical dictionaries can help you to learn more about a topic or a person, and to place them in wider historical and cultural contexts. Browse reference materials in the Reference section, on the second floor of Chalmers near Helpline. You can also search for online sources using the Advanced Search screen in CONSORT, by limiting the location to KEN Reference.
