US history collection (Gale)

Indexes and provides abstracts to articles in about 40 journals (scholarly and popular) in history. History is defined broadly to include journals covering folklore, ecology, religion, and archaeology, among others. Coverage dates are 1980 - present; as an example of how narrow their journal coverage is, the subject "Clinton, Bill" has only 114 results associated with it. This would be a good starting point for contemporary issues, or if the user has a very broad topic and isn't sure how to start. Better yet, the "Browse Subject" feature can help select or narrow down a topic. Once there is a focused topic, other article indexes can be used to get a fuller picture of the topic. Includes full text of many of the articles indexed. Gale Cengage
