History Databases Not Fully Indexed in SwoopSearch

The following History-related databases are not fully indexed in SwoopSearch, our comprehensive database search.  You will need to search these separately:

ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global (SwoopSearch indexes some but not all, and doesn't include full-text)

Gerritsen Collection--Women's History Online

Periodicals Archive Online (full image journal articles)

If you have a citation from a book or article bibliography...

Go to the Journals by Title page, enter the title of the journal, and see if it is available in any of our subscription databases or in the Library. Check to make sure your date is covered, then click on the database name, or make a note to come by the library. If we don't have direct access to the journal issue you need, please fill out an interlibrary loan request form.

Printed Periodical Indexes

For example, if you are looking for public reaction to the blitz in Great Britain, check Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature for 1940-1941.  These indexes are now on the 4th floor of the Robert R. Muntz Library in the Periodicals Room.
