History 321: The History of Black Migration: Secondary Sources

An online course guide for finding library resources in History 321.

Library Article Databases

The databases below contain articles from scholarly journals and magazines and cover content related to the subject of history.

Find the Full Text

Most databases have both full text articles and article citations. When an article is not available in full text, use the  button to determine if Andersen Library has the article. 

Click the Find It button displayed near article citation.

You will be linked to Research@UWW away from the database you are searching in. 

1 of 3 options will be available to you:

1.) If we have access to the article, a link to the article in the database that it is available will display under the View It tab.

Simply click on the link provided, and you will be linked to the full text article to view in a library database.

2.)If we only have access to the article in print, the Get It tab will display. This will show you the location of where you can find the article in Andersen Library.

3.) If neither of the first two options are available, you will see a link that says We can get it for you! (Document Delivery/Illiad) under the Get It tab.

Simply login with your Net ID, and click request. We will do our best to find the article for you by requesting a copy from another library. This is available free of charge to students and faculty. Please allow up to 3-4 days for your request to be filled. Articles can be accessed by logging into My ILLiad located on the library homepage. You will receive an e-mail to your UWW e-mail account when the article becomes available.
