Need Help? Did You...

Ask for help anytime but if it's after hours and you are stuck, here are some tips:

  • Check the bibliographies of your secondary sources (to find additional secondary as well as primary sources)
  • Consult the handouts on the various tabs of this guide (lots of search tips)
  • Try LibrarySearch and Worldcat (again) but try different combinations of terms and their synonyms.  The sources you already found are good places to look for additional terms.
  • Try Hathitrust - it gives you the benefit of searching the full-text of books and documents (includes many primary sources)
  • Email your librarian / subject specialist and request a research consultation.

Not in Midcat - What Next?

Tip: Worldcat, LibrarySearch, and many library databases include a link to Interlibrary Loan from each item we don't have. Look for the a Request button or links with the words Interlibrary Loan, ILLiad, or similar.
