British History

A guide to Hiram College Library resources related to British (and Irish) history from Roman times to the present.

Published Sources

Many primary sources are published and cataloged just like books.  So just use the library’s catalog or the OhioLINK catalog.  Some ways to help find those are:

  1. Identify key players and search for them as authors.  This will find papers, correspondence, memoirs, etc.  Remember that government agencies and corporations may also be authors.
  2. Do a keyword search using your topic and the words sources, diaries, letters, or correspondence e.g. (war of 1812 and sources)
