U.S. History Resources in the UML Library

The UML Library provides access to many databases which include peer-reviewed articles from academic journals, books, conference papers, maps, government reports, etc.

Begin by entering general search words in the UML Library Catalog. The results will show both what UML and what nearby institutions have available. You can refine your search by journal or article title, by subject, author or keyword.

Some titles are available in full-text and some are not. If UML does not own the article or book, the results page will include a "Request from Interlibrary Loan" button. Click this and you land on a loan request form prefilled with the article information. To make the request, you need an Interlibrary Loan account which is different from your library card account. Find instructions for creating an account here.

Using Article Quick Search

Article Quick Search is the name of the search engine for the library's journal content. It includes both titles the library owns and some it does not. If the library does not have access to an article, request it through Interlibrary Loan. Be sure first that the library does not own the title!
