HIS 401 & 495, Prof. Honhart: Finding Books

This guide is specifically for Prof. Honhart's HIS 401 and 495 capstone sequence, Struggles for Rights in Modern Europe.

Where to Start Your Book Search

There are three main places to start your search for books. Each has a different specialty and scope.

Finding Books

Search the catalog or other source for likely terms and look closely at your results. You will want to determine whether the results you have found use the exact search terms you used, or whether they use synonyms. If you find synonyms, try subsequent searches using those terms to find additional items.


If you find something that looks interesting, and you want to see similar results, click on the LC Subject – this will take you to other books on the same topic.
