Guide to basic historical research resources.


Welcome to the History Research Guide. Use the tabs and boxes to identify and locate items for your research. This guide provides general information regarding locating articles, books, or other resources for historical research. There are other guides that focus on specific regions, time periods, or topics and many of these are listed below.

These guides are only the beginning, please contact Amauri Serrano, subject librarian for history, for a research consultation for one-on-one help with your research.

Key Resources

The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) is another excellent resource for books, periodicals, manuscripts, newspapers, and archival materials in print, microfilm, and digital formats. FSU belongs to this international consortium of university, college, and independent research libraries, which allows FSU patrons to borrow CRL materials via interlibrary loan for extended periods.

One way to identify key collections is through CRL Topic Guides.
