HIST 466 / HIST 866: The Middle Ages in Film (Fizzard, Fall 2022): Journal articles

Databases

You may find it helpful to search in some of the following databases for journal articles.

Some are multidisciplinary, which means they will be helpful for finding both History and Film materials (or interdisciplinary work that overlaps these disciplines), while others are better for finding works on either History or Film.

Please note:

  • If you are working off campus, most of these resources require that you log in with your uregina username and password to access them.
  • Some of these resources include citations only; that means that you will need to track down the actual article elsewhere. If you need help with this step (or at any point along the way) please feel free to contact the Librarian for assistance.

Interlibrary loans

If you are unable to find a book or article through the library's catalogue or databases, you can make an interlibrary loan (ILL) request to obtain this material from another library.

To place an interlibrary loan request:

  • Go to the ILL Request screen.
  • Log in using your barcode and last name.
  • Under Add request select the type of material you are requesting.
  • Complete the form with as much information as you can.

If you have any questions about this process, just ask for help at Campion Library, or you can check out the library's FAQ page on ILL. Please note that ILL can take days, or even weeks to complete (since the material is coming from another library), so it's a good idea to plan ahead and start your research early.

Boolean operators

Many databases, including Quick Find, allow you to use Boolean operators (ANDOR, and NOT) to carry out your search.

An explanation of how to use Boolean operators is available from MIT Libraries.

Finding journal articles in Quick Find

Quick Find is a search tool that will help you locate research materials in all four campus libraries. You can use this tool to search for peer-reviewed journal articles (although you can search for many other types of materials as well, by changing the Resource Type filters). You can access Quick Find from the Library home page.

To search for journal articles in Quick Find:

  • Log into Quick Find (top right corner of the screen) using your Novell username and password.
  • Enter your search terms (for searching tips, see Archer Library's Quick Find LibGuide).
  • Under Refine your search, select Peer-reviewed journals.
  • Under Resource Type in the left column, select Articles.
  • If you prefer to only consider items to which the library has full-text access, select Full text online under Refine your search.

When you find an item you would like to view, select Full text available, then select the database link (or one of the database links; sometimes an article is available in more than one database). Once you are brought to the article's item record, locate the link to the PDF file to view it.

Please note that if you are working off campus, most of the library's online resources require that you log in with your uregina.ca username and password in order to access them.
