About this LibGuide

Welcome to the Medieval Studies LibGuide! This main page compiles general resources in the field, as well as a rotating display of new acquisitions and trial or spotlight resources at River Campus Libraries (make sure to scroll down!). The sub-field tabs above feature a smaller number of discipline-specific resources, databases, and websites. Have fun exploring!

Places to Begin: Encyclopedias, Databases & Portals

Once you've exhausted all the usual suspects (MLA Bibliography, JSTOR, and of course the Rush Rhees and Robbins Library stacks), you can turn your attentions to more specific databases. These resources will help you find overview articles, quick facts, and definitions, as well as scholarly articles.
