Q

Does the library have any books about the years 1492-1815?

I need to do a research paper about a historical event that happened within this time period.

Answer

We do not have books that are about global history during that specific period of time, but we do have many books about specific historical events that took place within that period.  The best way to approach this topic is to select an individual event that happened from between 1492 and 1815 (ex. colonization of the Americas by Europeans, the Revolutionary War, Louisiana Purchase) and search for books on it.

Once you have selected a topic, follow the link below to our library catalog, WorldCat, to search for books on it.

If you need ideas for a historical event to select, try doing a google search for world history timeline.  There are numerous sites available that can give you ideas for notable events that would make good research topics.
