History Research Guide

Use this guide to find articles, books, reference sources and more for research in history. The guide focuses on online resources, which can be accessed either within the library or remotely. In addition to online resources, selected print titles are included. The guide lists basic resources and does not contain all of the materials in the library useful for historical research. For additional resources consult other relevant subject guides, the Hawaii Voyager Library Catalog, or the librarian for history, Dave Beales.
