The two big databases are America History & Life and Historical Abstracts: both index articles about history going back to 1492, but they are complimentary in their geographic scope. America History & Life covers the 'new world' of the North American colonies and their later emergence as nations. Historical Abstracts covers the 'old world', Europe and Africa.
In addition to these two databases, below you'll see information about some specialized resources. Some are only in print (apologies!).
In addition to the databases listed above for language and literature, below are some other databases that have foreign language content. Their subject emphases vary.

The MARQCAT record will indicate what years we have in print and/or online, providing call number locations for the print and links to the e-journal. Once at the e-journal, navigate to the volume, issue and page that you need.
Didn't find the journal using Find it @MU or MARQCAT? Request the article through Interlibrary Loan. This can be done directly from the link at the bottom of the Find it @MU window or tab.
