HI-200 Col. Wilkinson: Find Books

This guide is designed as a starting point for doing research in the many areas of history.

Why use books?

Books provide in-depth information on broad subject areas. Researchers use them when they need:

  • Historical context or comprehensive background information for their subject area
  • Synthesis and analysis of events and information

Note: Often a chapter or two, rather than the entire book, are all that you may need.
