Indexes & Databases on the Library Website

InterLibrary Loan

Remember that we can get books and articles from other libraries for you - just give us some lead time and a citation and let us do the rest. 

PRIMO: One Search to Rule them All

PRIMO searches across many platforms. Results will include books, articles, ebooks, journals, media, and more - in print and online. This search is also located on the main page of the library website.

Suggested Search Terms

Most databases use the controlled vocabulary created by the Library of Congress in Washington DC. This controlled vocabulary, known as the Library of Congress Subject Headings, yields more relevant and effective search results than typical keyword searches. Terms suggested for the topic of this course include:

Gettysburg, Battle of, Gettsburg, Pa., 1863

Gettysburg, Battle of, Gettsburg, Pa., 1863 -- Personal narratives
