This guide gives you an overview of recommended resources for History: reference works to orientate on a particular topic and to find references to literature, scholarly literature databases and search engines, and all kinds of resources containing digital or digitized primary sources.
Listed are both resources to which the Library has subscribed, as well as resources that are available via the National Library of the Netherlands (you can recognize those by the symbol), or are freely available online.
Manually collecting the information you need to create correct references can be a lot of work. There are tools available, called reference managers, to make this easier. They enable you to export the bibliographical data you need (title, author name(s), publication year, etc.) from online sources such as Google Scholar, sEURch, and almost all scholarly literature databases.
The University Library supports RefWorks. When you see the RefWorks symbol next to a resource title somewhere in this Guide, you know it is possible to export references from that resource to RefWorks. The Library has created an e-course on how to use RefWorks.
