Historical U.S. Newspaper Collections (NSU Resources Page)

E-Journals by Title can be useful for finding many full text journal articles that may be discovered through one the above online resources without the full text. Interlibrary loan services can also be used when needing an article that is not available in full text on a database.


The NSU Library Discovery Catalog can be used to identify books on environmental history topics. For example: type the search terms environmental history in the search box. Once the search has run, refine the search on the left of the screen for items owned by NSU Libraries by checking the box Northeastern State University and the box for Print book under Format.

In addition, WorldCat (international library catalog) can be used to identify books not owned by the NSU Library. Books found on WorldCat that are not owned by the NSU Library can be borrowed for free through interlibrary loan. Also, journal articles not available through the NSU Library can be obtained free of charge through interlibrary loan.
