Scholarly Books and Articles

Books are essential resources when conducting research in humanistic fields such as history and religion and classics.  The River Campus Libraries provide immediate access to over one million titles including both print and electronic books.  Need something not in UR's collection?  You can use interlibrary loan (a free service!) to get access to any titles that you need.

One of the best places to find books on your topic is through the library's website.  To get started, visit the library's homepage and choose "Library Catalog Only" from the dropdown box...or try out the search box below.


The University of Rochester provides access to a wide array of databases including many focused on history.  The databases listed below represent some of the most commonly used tools for history research and serve as a good starting point for almost any topic or research question. If you need help searching in any of these databases, remember you can always reach out to a librarian!
