History Subject Headings

History subject headings can be very complex.  For example, a subject heading for books about the American Revolution is "United States--History--Revolutionary period, 1775-1783." A good way to find useful subject headings is to do a keyword search on your topic and look at the subject headings listed on the relevant items.

To find original materials, try typing in your subject followed by terms such as diaries, letters, personal narratives, or sources.
