Find History Books: The Basics

Use Library Search to find books owned by Temple University Libraries. You can search by author, title, subject, or keyword.

To search for books about World War I, the best way to search is with the phrase World War, 1914-1918

Once you find a book that seems useful, check the list of Subject links in the item's record. Try these links to find additional books on the same topic. For example the subject: World War, 1914-1918 -- Netherlands, will take you to other books on the Dutch in World War I.

Books From Other Libraries

If Temple does not own the book you need consider requesting it from another library via PALCI E-ZBorrow. If no E-ZBorrow library has the book you need then request a broader search for the book through our ILLiad (interlibrary loan) service.
