The History of Science, Technology and Medicine (HSTM) is the definitive international bibliographic database for the history of science, technology, and medicine and their influence on culture, from pre-history to the present. Includes records of journal articles, conference proceedings, books, dissertations, serials, maps and other materials.
This combined search box allows you to search for material, from 1450 to the present by searching two databases simultaneously: Historical Abstracts, which covers world history, and America History & Life, which covers the United States and Canada. Do not use this search box if you are researching classical or medieval history--instead, use Iter and L'année philologique from the list to the left.
In secondary sources, authors analyze and interpret primary source materials.
Secondary sources can be scholarly or popular. Scholarly sources (sometimes called "academic" or "peer-reviewed" sources) are written by and for experts and typically include bibliographies and citations. Popular sources are written for a general, non-expert audience and can be authored by anyone.
