History: American: Article Databases

Other Avenues to Articles

Google Scholar

Google Scholar sometimes picks up the odd bit of scholarship.

Index to Older Scholarship

There is a print reference set that indexes OLDER scholarly articles in the field of history.  Depending on your topic, you may want to take a look here.

Combined Retrospective Index Set to Journals in History, 1838-1974
Z 6205 .C18 (Reference)
This 11-volume set allows the user to search by broad keywords to find articles about history and its related fields in scholarly journals dating as far back as 1838, through 1974. One can also search by author names to get journal citations. No other history index provides access to so many articles from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
