Finding Articles

Evidence found in newspaper, magazine and journal articles is more specific than background information and support your arguments. Scholarly (peer-reviewed) articles are often required for academic papers. These articles are found using subscription library databases.

The short list of databases on this page may be particularly useful for your assignment. A full list of our databases can be found here:

Recommended Databases for U.S. History

Databases with Primary Source Content

General Databases

These databases cover a broad range of subjects; you may find additional sources in them beyond what is found in the history-specific databases.
