History

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

Medieval, Renaissance and Early Modern history

To find books on a particular subject, try a keyword search on the library catalogue. For example:

plague or "black death"

"joan of arc"

 

Because medieval, Renaissance and early-modern history spans many topics - art, politics, philosophy, religion, literature, music, material and social history, and more – the best initial strategy is to search the library catalogue for key words. However, below are some useful call numbers where you could browse:
