        Books (primary and scholarly/secondary)

        • WorldCat
          Catalog of books and documents in research libraries throughout the world. Watch especially for the AREA LIBRARIES designation.

        Additional primary/period pieces

        • 19th Century Masterfile
          Citations to Anglo-American nineteenth century newspapers, periodicals, books, and goverment documents

        Scholarly/secondary journal articles

        • Academic Search Complete
          A subscription database. Good starting place for journals, and includes the full text of about 3000 journals. Limit to "peer reviewed" to find only scholarly articles. Back issues of journals begin as early as 1990. Recent issues may not be included yet, due to publisher agreement. Journals held in Trexler Library are marked accordingly.
        • JSTOR
          A substantive archive of more than 300 scholarly history journals, all full text. As an archive, there is typically a lag time of 3-5 years from publication until new issues appear in JSTOR. Full text journals include American Historical Review, Journal of American History, Journal of American Studies, Review in American History, Comparative Studies in Society and History, Cultural Critique, Eighteenth Century Studies, Environmental History, Historical Journal, and History and Theory.
        • America History & Life
          A subscription database for American history.
        • Art Full Text
          A subscription database for art criticism including dance, performance art, and theatre.
        • MLA International Bibliography
          A subscription database for literary criticism, film criticism, and theater criticism.

        Search engines

        • Google
          Non-selective. One of the largest web crawlers.
        • Google Scholar
          An open-access web crawler that looks for content it identifies as "scholarly." Emphasis is on books and journal articles. Intended as a "federated search" to search across disciplines (weighted toward sciences and social sciences). Not always full text. Check our Journal Locator (see above) to see if Muhlenberg has access to the full text.
