Getting Started

Welcome to the History - Africa and Europe Library Guide.  The best way to navigate through through this site is by using the tabs at the top of each page.  Let me give a brief explanation as to how each section is organized and what it contains.  Let's start with:

Article Databases  This section primarily consists of databases that index and in some cases provide full text access to historical literature or to resources that will aid in historical research.  With few exceptions, these databases are accessible off-campus only to the current ASU community(students, faculty and staff).  The sub-tabs under this heading are more specific subject areas or categories of materials.  Current sub-tabs include: Newspapers and Newspaper Databases;and   Reference and General Resources .

Primary Sources  "Real" history is written using primary sources.  Through the internet, it is now possible to gain access to a huge wealth of primary source material that in the past would have been available only through visiting libraries and archives.  The Primary Sources page is divided into two main categories: resources available through ASU Library and sites freely available on the Internet.  The Primary Sources page concludes with a section on how to evaluate primary sources on the Internet.

 Web Resources  The web sites on this page are all available on the internet and do not necessarily fit into any of the other categories.  Included here are e-book sites, general history aggregator sites as well as sites of general interest for history. 

Citing Sources  Collected here are several links for sites relating to citation manual sources and to RefWorks.
