This section recommends links to guides created by the library for studies of specific regions/cultural groups. You will want to look for the resources that focus on cultural history and/or gender. Be sure to keep your culture and the time period in mind when selecting and searching databases from these guides.
After you've found an article citation in a database, how do you go about getting your hands on the actual article? Some databases have full text articles in them already. In this case, you should see a link to either an HTML or PDF document. If the full text isn't available in a specific database, you should see a button that looks like this:
Clicking this button will open a new browser tab or window and will search the Illinois library subscriptions and online catalog. This new page will tell you if we have electronic access to the specific article you need.
If it indicates that we have online full text, click the link to get to the article.
If the Discover page doesn't show access to online full text, click the link for "Holdings in VuFind" to search the library catalog for print holdings of that journal.
