Historical Databases

Good Databases for Historical Research

Historical research is one of the topic areas where it is better to start in a specific database, rather than using OneSearch.

The following SCC Library databases are particularly useful for research on historical topics. 

Benefits of Library Databases - Citation

One of the benefits of using library databases over Google for your research is that most of the databases will help you with citation.

However, there are often errors in citations that are generated by the databases so don't copy and paste them directly into your research paper. Make sure to compare them against one of the style guides for appropriate formating.
