Specific Bibliography Search

If you are looking for a specific bibliography, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to our library home page
  2. Look for the search box (multi-search) where it says, "search for books, articles, and more:"
  3. Type in the title of the bibliography
  4. You should see it in the results if we have it. 
  5. If you don't see the one you are looking for, you may want to consider using our Interlibrary Loan service and we will locate a copy and mail it to you. 

Subject Bibliography Search

If you are looking for bibliographies on a certain subject, please follow these steps:

  1. You can use that same search box as above (multi-search), but try a search like this:
              [your subject] AND bibliograph*
  2. For example, try this search: Napoleon AND bibliograph*
  3. While the first page of results does not seem to yield any print or electronic bibliographies, there are three book reviews of bibliographies which provides some titles for further research.
  4. Next, search for these titles using our library catalog:
    • The Impact of Napoleon, 1800-1815: An Annotated Bibliography.
    • The Era of Napoleon: A Bibliography of the History of Western Civilization, 1799-1815.
    • The French Revolution and Napoleon Collection at Florida State University, A Bibliographical Guide
  5. Unfortunately, we don't have any of these, but you can request them with our Interlibrary Loan service. The service itself is free, but you will have to pay return shipping on all books.

More Resources 

For topics for which you can't find a book-length bibliography, please try a reference resource like Credo Reference or try a reader’s guide.  Here are three reader’s guides that we have as ebooks:

  2. Reader's guide to British history. David Loades, editor. New York: Fitzroy Dearborn, 2003.
