Background/Reference Sources

Find History Books

Use Library Search to find books and e-books (as well as articles, videos, and other content) owned by Temple University Libraries. Search by author, title, subject, or keyword. After searching, select the Books & Media heading to see all book results.

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: Indians of North America -- History -- Colonial period, ca. 1600-1775, will take you to other books on Native Americans in Colonial North America.
