History of the United States: Online Databases

History Databases at the McCarthy Library

The American History and Life Database provides a robust source of information focusing on the history and life of the United States and Canada. Selective indexing includes over a thousand journals dating back over 55 years. This source has proved to be an important bibliographic reference tool for students and scholars of U.S. and Canadian history. Students can limit results to a specific history period (by indicating year or era), as well as limit by publication, full-text and peer-reviewed articles.
