JSTOR = be sure to narrow to the item type to “Article,” so you do not get book reviews. While reviews can be helpful in finding books, you cannot substitute them for full-length scholarly articles for this assignment. Also, remember to narrow to history journals in the "NARROW BY DISCIPLINE" area.
Project Muse = after you've done your search, limit your results to "Articles" from the "Content Type" (see left side of the results screen) and to history journals by clicking the "History" check box in the "Research Area" limiter space.
