A guide to researching Great Britain in the 1930s. The Depression. Appeasement of Hitler. General Strike

Introduction and Online Catalog

This is a guide to reference, main stacks, microform, and online resources in the M.S.U. Libraries about Great Britain in the 1930s. It is particularly useful for political and diplomatic research.

The intention is for the researcher to consult one of the bibliographies, guides, encyclopedias, or dictionaries contained herein, read about the topic, and look up one or more of the "further reading references" by author/title in the online catalog. Clicking on the subject headings in the bottom of the catalog record takes one to more books on that topic.

Here are some useful subject headings to be used in subject searches in our online catalog:

Great Britain--foreign relations--1910-36 or 1910-1945

Great Britain--politics and government--20th c

Great Britain--social conditions--20th c.

Great Britain--economic conditions--20th c.

Great Britain--economic conditions--1918-1945

Great Britain--history--20th c.

Great Britain--history--1910-1936 or 1910-1945

Watch for sub and sub sub-headings for bibliography, sources, archives, etc.

It is also possible to do a quick and dirty, one box keyword search of the contents of the MSU Libraries' web site, starting at the top left of the Libraries' home page.  The results will be sorted into several categories to follow up on:  articles from journals, books/media from our online catalog, databases, library research guides like this one, other. Watch a short video about it here.
