History Honors Students: Library Research Guide: Getting Started


Welcome to the website for History Honors Students!  We are the three primary librarians for History, but there are also many specialized librarians with area and subject specialities who will be able to help with your research.  See the complete list of subject librarians or the list of subject guides.

The Library Guide for History  is a good place to begin, or see the specialized guides to topics such as  U.S., Medieval,  Military, and NC history.  There are also guides to most  other areas of the world.

Any of us will be happy to meet with you at any stage in your research to help you make the most of the library resources. 

Also, the library offers special privileges for Honors students, see the box below for details.
