Your Research for this Class and this Guide

Hello!  Welcome to CM HI Global Borderlands.

This guide is best used as a starting point for your research papers, offering selected secondary and primary databases, as well as other guides to consult (where you'll find many other databases to explore!) and a review of the sorts of research strategies we discussed in our research session as well ass a secition on Writing and Citing (particularly Zotero)

Above all, please know that I (and other librarians) are here to help you!

Start here for History: Main Databases for Secondary, Scholary in International History

Mostly Primary: Current Day Historical and Present Day News Sources

Primary Sources in Library Catalogs

Primary sources of all types can also be found in our regular, circulating books, in special collections, and beyond.  Here are few ways to find primary texts and sources by using our own  The Library Search.
1. Use the author search  to find books we have by a particular author, politician, journalist or another type of historical witness
2.  Do an advanced keyword search in The Library Search and then limit by publication year under “limit your search”) (note:  you can also limit by language and many other ways)
3. . Do an advanced keyword in Library Search and then limit by years and then limit to the word  "sources" in the subject field (by using the dropdown menu), for example
"sources" in the subject field. 
(this brings us the Library of Congress Subject subheading “sources” which is sometimes used to designate primary source collections of different kinds — as in "Sino-Indian Border Dispute, 1957- History Sources
