Primo contains the records of books, archival holdings, DVDs and more in Collins Library and the other SUMMIT libraries, as well as a small selection of articles from multiple disciplines.
When you find a relevant book or collection of scholarly essays in Primo, be sure to click on "Item Details" to discover its Library of Congress Subject Headings. These will lead you to even more possibilities!
Databases will help you discover many more scholarly articles beyond what is in Primo.
Historical Abstracts is a subject-specific index that will help you find the most scholarship written by historians.

RefWorks allows for sharing outside your institution as well as inside, however, each person you share your collection with will need a RefWorks account in order to view your research (which they can create for free!). You can share with up to 10 people per collection for free account holders or an unlimited number of RefWorks users if you have an Institutional account.
The person you've invited will get an email notification, and a notification inside RefWorks, where they can accept (or reject) the invitation. If the person doesn’t have a RefWorks account, they will be asked to create one.
Remember, when you share a collection any sub-collections are also shared.
