Welcome to the HIST library dashboard. The dashboard provides quick links to the resources you need to succeed in your course. Whether you are online or on-Grounds, UVA Library services and support are available to all students.
Your Librarian is Keith Weimer.
Each school/department at UVA is assigned a research librarian. Connect with Keith for help with your assignments. This service is available to all HIST students, and meeting with a librarian early in your research process can help you save time and get a better grade.
Keith can help with: learning how to use the Library online, brainstorming your research topic, developing your search strategy, capstone/thesis/dissertation planning, identifying relevant databases/journals for your literature reviews, tracking down resources, and citation management. Keith can meet with you in-person or online via Zoom.
Academic databases contain peer-reviewed articles, scientific papers, reports, and more. These are the most used databases for HIST research.
Virgo is the Library catalog, where you can find books, articles, and more.
For most courses in HIST our preferred citation style is The Chicago Manual of Style
