Reference Databases

Research Tip

Research is a process that takes TIME.  Start early and do a little bit each day.  You will NOT have a thesis statement after one day in the library.  You need to learn a little bit about your topic before you can develop an argument!

Welcome to the Oliver Wendell Holmes Library and the History 100 OWHL Guide on the Mongols

Remember, some names or terms may have alternate spellings. For example, Genghis Khan may be called the "Chinggis Khan." Once you find an alternate spelling, be sure to write it down in your notes and make sure to check the index of any book for both spellings. You never know how an author is going to refer to something!

Below is a list of reference sources available in the Garver Room and online to help you get started on your research.

If you have any questions, please see one of the librarians at the Help Desk!
