The Thacher School Databases
These database links will only work on campus. If you are off campus, you will need to access them from following the prompt at the bottom of the database links on the Thacher Library web page.
Databases vary in the type of information they offer. If your topic is historical, most likely QuestiaSchool, JStor, Google Scholar and books will be your best bet. If your topic is timely or looking at the history of the development of a country or it's relations over time than many of the databases and books can assist you. Please see my notes beneath each one to help guide you.
Are you trying to find information on your topic? A good place to start and see if there are enough book resources available is here :
If you didn't find anything in our catalog on your topic, then try searching the other libraries tab on your left. For this project there is not a lot of turn around time but if you really need something you can E-mail your requests to Ms. LaForge. Request only what you can read in a timely manner. We are only able to renew books one time. So if you find ten books you think will be useful, only request a few (2-3). When you are finished with them, you can request more.
Books + Online Reference Books
Browse the collection to find books in for 960 for Africa, the Middle East in 956. These are some general areas for these topics. Searching the catalog will aid in finding more specific information on topics not found in the call numbers I've listed here for you. Below are a few books to get you started.
Chat with a Librarian
Are you having trouble finding good information on the internet and it's late at night? Ask one of these librarians.
This is can be a great resource for articles and books and some of them full-text. Be sure to check an authors credentials though before using items found here. Since time is limited, it may prove especially helpful for this project.
