History 280 - Perspectives on Modern Imperialism: Academic Research Articles

A guide for Marc Baer's Fall 2014 HIST 280 course.

Historical Abstracts

Historical Abstracts is the major database for history related articles on topics other than the United States and Canada (see America: History and Life for this).  You will probably find this database very helpful as you search for the historical background information on your topic.  Here is a reminder of the many ways that you can control and limit your searches in order to get the best results.

NOTE: HA is not a full-text database, which means that you will often need to locate the journal in order to find an article in full.
