History: Find Articles

History Journal Article Databases

Below are the key subject databases to search for journal articles (as well as books, book chapters, and other publications) on historical topics.  Many of the databases have full-text journal articles, but if the full text is not available, click on the Article Linker link ().  If another database from the OSU Library has the full text of the article, it will be displayed in a new window or a link to it will appear.  If an article is not available online from another database, you can get a copy of the article from interlibrary loan.  Click on the "Request a copy of this article" link and log in to the Interlibrary Services page that comes up.  The article citation information will automatically appear in the interlibrary loan form.  Click the "Submit" button, and you will receive an email when your article is available, usually within 48 hours.

You will need to log in with your OSU email address and O-Key password to access these databases off-campus.  Click HERE to log in.
