History Reference Center houses journal articles, primary source documents, and reference materials. While you can search the database as normal, the Browse feature on the homepage is a great way to pick a topic for a research paper or just to quickly learn about an era. Choose a main section (U.S. or World) then a time period to view important events, issues, and people during that time. Each item on the list will take you to a package of materials on the topic.  https://kslib.info/history
