European History: Welcome

A guide to resources in researching European history (1450-present) at PSU Library.

Researching European History at PSU Library

Historical Nautical Chart of the Mediterranean BasinThis guide focuses on resources for researching European during the Modern and Early Modern eras, from 1450 to the present.

History majors and grad students should find this guide particularly useful, as I've attempted to be comprehensive in the list of primary source databases. If you are studying history outside of Europe, please look at the main History & Historiography Research Guide. I'll be adding additional topical guides in the months ahead.

If you have suggestions for databases, websites, or other sources to add to this guide, please contact me.

Note: The images throughout this guide are drawn primarily from open source collections in the public domain. You may find useful content from these websites for your own research.
