Helping a student do research for a history article? Or do you want to brush up on your own history knowledge? Chandler Library has two new resources to help you: U.S. History in Context and World History in Context. Find overview essays, primary sources, articles from journals and newspapers, and more. Read about the Colonial Era and other time periods, biographies of prominent people, major Supreme Court cases, and other historical topics.
To access these databases, start at chandlerlibrary.org and hover your mouse over the purple RESEARCH tab. Then click Databases A-Z, and scroll down to choose U.S. History or World History in Context. You’ll need your library card and PIN if you’re signing in from home. Then you can browse popular topics from the main page or use the search bar at the top to search for your own topic. Also - look for the Citation Tools link that goes with each article. It will tell you how to include the resource in a Works Cited page, just like a regular book or magazine.
