The definitive guide to all things History at the ANU Library

Important notice about resource links

The ANU Library has recently transitioned to a new search and discovery system. This means that the links to the resources outlined in this guide will need to be updated, so they direct you to the record in the new system. If you come across a resource with a broken link, you can access the item by searching for the title or author in our Catalogue or SuperSearch.

If you have any questions or need support, please get in touch.

Thank you for reading our subject guides. We hope they are helpful to your studies and research.

Let's get started

Welcome to the ANU Library subject guide for History.

This guide has been put together to help you navigate your way through the various information resources in the ANU Library's collection that fall under the very broad subject area of "History." Simply click on the menu tabs located on the left to view the astounding variety of online and print material available to help you make the most of your research projects and assignments.

As you work through this material, you'll discover a wealth of primary, secondary and tertiary sources. When studying history, it's important to distinguish between these, and our short video below is a great place to start your research journey.
