History 038: Russia in the 20th Century - Weinberg

Books in the TriCo Libraries

Use Tripod to find books held by the TriCollege libraries.  You can request books from the other TriCo schools and have them delivered to Swarthmore.

Most Russian history books will be found in the DK section, which you can find on the lower level of McCabe.
 

How to Use Subject Headings:
Sample subject headings include:

These subject headings are broad, but can help you identify more focused subheadings, such as "Soviet Union > History > 1917-1936 > Sources."

To search directly for a subject heading, go to Tripod and change the drop-down menu from "Keyword" to "Subject." Enclose the subject heading in double quotes and then search.

Books Beyond the TriCo Libraries

To find books that are not owned by the TriCo libraries, search by keywords and/or subject headings in WorldCat, and make interlibrary loan or EZ-Borrow requests.  Whenever possible, try to make your interlibrary loan requests early in the semester, to ensure that the books arrive with enough time left to write your paper.

Dissertations

Doctoral students go through an exhaustive literature search when writing their dissertations. They also tend to work on new questions, sometimes ones that have received very little attention from scholars before. You can obtain many of these dissertations and benefit from all the bibliographic treasues and new ideas. Check ProQuest Dissertations & Theses to identify dissertations on your topic.
