This library guide is designed for students in Dr. Shirley's course on the History of the Middle Ages, 350-1350 (HIST 3302, Spring 2016). It incorporates material created by Loren Pinkerman, the retired Director of Lewis Library.
Thus is just a selection of the resources available. Please don't hesitate to come to the reference desk for help on your specific topic, or e-mail the reference librarian.
If you need a book or article that we don’t have, please ask. If it’s in a library in the U.S. that will lend it to us, we’ll get it for you on interlibrary loan.
Reference books are usually the best place to start your research. They’ll provide background information, terms, alternate spellings, and often a bibliography of recommended readings. These are just a few of the reference books that may be useful, depending on your topic.
