Step 2: Look for Books
Begin your research by checking for your topic in the library catalogue. Remember to click the TITLE to display the longer ITEM DETAILS record, and then examine the Subject terms at the bottom of the record. Click on appropriate relevant Subject terms to see if there are any other items available on your topic. Some useful World history Subject Terms include:
Europe - History - 476-1492
Europe - History - 1945-
History - 1945-
Rome - History - Empire, 284-476
Other Reference Sources
Step 3: Use Periodical Articles
Periodicals offer excellent information. To locate articles in your subject area, use the online indexes - Proquest's Canadian Newsstand and Canadian Business and Current Affairs Index - and Ebscohost's Academic Search Elite, Canadian Reference Centre, MAS Ultra School and Military and Government Collection. Once you have located article citations, if the article is not in fulltext online, click on the Where can I get this? button to see if the journal is available in either the CNC or UNBC libraries. If the article is not available locally, get it from another B.C. library by clicking on the Check other library catalogues button to request the item online via Interlibrary Loan. Remember to order items early!
Step 4: Check World History Websites
From the Library page click on Web Subject Sites - History to find a list of recommended Canadian history websites.
