Search Everything

The Chamberlain University Library provides access to information sources through a single, unified search system on the library homepage, otherwise known as the Search Everything system. This system allows you to search the library's entire collection, including electronic journals (eJournals), electronic books (eBooks), videos, reference materials, and more.

Search History Databases

The preferred way of finding a source for your assignment is by doing a search from the Search Everything system on the library homepage. However, your instructor may require a specific database for your research, or you may want to explore a database that focuses more on history topics. If this is the case, then below are the top-recommended databases for history.
