Finding books @TCU

To find books on your topic at TCU, start with a person, event, or general topic of interest, and add the word "history." For example:

Olympics and history

If you know the date of your event, you can add the date into your search. For example:

Olympics and history and 1936

If you want to find books about a certain topic in a particular century, add that century into your search. For example: 

Olympics and history and "20th century" (use the quotes to keep "20th Century" together as a phrase)

If you're finding information on your topic and it does not have an American focus, add "United States" with the quotes. For example:

Fashion and history and "United States"

Texas History Books
