HIST 32050 - Historical Research Methods: Finding Books and Dissertations

Finding Books and Dissertations

Use these resources to locate books, government documents and other resources on historical topics.

Please search the KentLINK first to see we have on your topic.

If you don't find enough resources on your topic or if a particular book you want is out, then search the OhioLINK catalog. 

If the OhioLINK system has no available copies, then click on the SearchOhio link and your search will be placed in the SearchOhio system.  Items found in OhioLINK or SearchOhio can be requested and sent to Kent State for you to pick-up.

Search WorldCat when you don't have any luck using the other three catalogs, but keep in mind that you will either need to go to the holding library to get those items or will need to request them via Interlibrary Loan (if they are circulating and not archival.)
