These are the top European History-specific databases that we recommend looking in for articles. If you’re not entirely sure yet what you need, try checking out the list of “General” databases; they’re often the best place to start. Also, try clicking “History” in the drop-down menu.
Keep going to the bottom of this list to see the rest of our European History databases, as well as a list at the very end of other online and book sources you may find useful.
