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 is just the beginning, so if you need more help locating articles, books, or other resources for your paper, contact us about setting up a research consultation. During a research consultation, a librarian meets with you one-on-one to help you get a handle on the resources you need to complete your assignment.

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.
