Law, Culture, and Society in Europe and its Empires

Getting Started

There are many handbooks, dictionaries, and encyclopedias that provide basic information for historical studies. If you are selecting a topic, build a framework by consulting definitions or a quick overview found in these resources and then focus on your topic by searching for more specific information. Tip: Call number "D" = general and European history when you're browsing the stacks.
