The Crusades: Journal Articles

Short guide to researching the Crusades, in English, 11th-14th centuries.

Journal Articles

To find scholarly journal articles, use a periodical index to identify possible articles to read.  Sometimes you can click through to the full text of the article from the index you use.  If not, then look up the title of the journal containing the article you want in our online catalog.  Some journals are available both online and in paper copies, some only in paper copies.  If the latter is the case, go to the shelves using the call number given in our online catalog for the journal itself.  The periodical index tells you what volume, year, issue date, and page to look for when you get to the shelf.  If you have trouble with the steps of the process, the librarians at the Reference Desk in the lobby will help you.
