History Resource Center: The United States provides integrated access to more than 4,000 historical (primary) documents, articles from more than 30 reference titles, and 110 full-text journal covering themes, events, individuals and periods in U.S. history from pre-Colonial times to the present. The material also includes citations from more than 180 additional history journals from the Institute for Scientific Information's Arts and Humanities Citation Index, as well as the entire American Journey Online series. Contact the library for the current password to access off-campus.

Listen to them on the computer or download them to an MP3 player and listen while you are in transit. Sign up with your own login and password while connected to NetLibrary on a networked Bates computer for remote access.

Contact the library if you'd like help with any of their online resources.
