Why Use a Index

Use an article index to find journal articles on your topic, as well as other materials related to history.  

Some will contain the full text of journals and those that don't usually provide links to the full text if it is available via other databases in our collection

Evaluate Articles

Articles are important in your research as they contain the most-up-to-date research in a given field and often focus on a particular aspect of a topic.

But not all journal articles will be useful for your essay so you will need to evaluate before you use them. 

Consult our guide, Distinguishing Scholarly from Non Scholarly Periodicals, to discover the difference between scholarly, trade and popular periodicals.
