Medieval Studies: Home

This guide is designed for students at the M.A. level and focuses on interdisciplinary online resources in Medieval Studies. This is only a starting point and electronic resources should be verified with their print ancestors in many cases.

About this Guide

Welcome to the WMU Libraries' subject guide for Medieval Studies. This guide is designed to address the needs of WMU graduate students in accessing material available to them either through WMU's library collections or free online. Because of the very regional and specialized nature of medieval studies, students should expect that many of their questions will require them to move independently beyond these guides to prepare their research.

Use the tabs at the top of the page to help navigate through this guide.

For assistance in doing your research, please contact me or any other librarian.
