History Library Guide
The Library has a wide variety of information about history, included in books, journals and DVDs, as well as online resources. This guide introduces all these sources and gives some tips to help you find the information you need quickly and efficiently.
If you need any help please ask a member of Library staff.
Books are a good source for straightforward, detailed and reliable information.
History books are located in the Blue Zone
and can be found at class number 908
onwards. You may also find useful items in other sections of the Library, e.g.
economics (330 onwards in the Green Zone) and medicine and health care (610).
Your tutor may recommend particular books to you, for example:
Edexcel GCE History~ Henry VIII: authority, nation and religion
Armstrong, A. (2008) Class number: 942.04
Edexcel AS History Unit 1~republicanism, civil war and Francoism
in Spain, 1931-75
Bunce, R (2011) Class number: 946
If you are looking for a particular book use the Library catalogue. You can search
by author and title and it will show you where to find it on the shelves – look for
the class number, e.g. 942.05
. It will also tell you how many copies of the book
we have & if the book is out on loan.
Think carefully about the terms you use to search. For example, if you are
searching for information on perestroika
, you’ll need to look in a book on the Cold War
. Then search for perestroika in the contents pages and index

and handbooks, which are useful for checking facts quickly. For example: Who’s who in the 20th Century
