A guide to resources relevant to Historical Studies at the University of Melbourne Library


Welcome to the History Subject Research Guide

This guide:

  • Brings together Library resources at the University of Melbourne Library, both in print and online, that are relevant to History
  • Contains direct links to subject headings, online journal article databases, news sources, theses sources and statistics
  • Contains useful searching tips when searching the Library's databases

To navigate to different parts of the guide, use the headings on the left hand side of the guide. This guide is a little different to our other Subject Research Guides as the featured resources are broken up into relative time periods and geographies. Resources within each tab are then further organised into formats (books, journal articles, primary sources and reference sources).

If you need further help with using this guide or your area of research is not covered by the resources featured, please visit the 'Further help' heading to get in touch with us!
