UWM Libraries databases

The following databases work well to search for historical topics of research. They can only be accessed at UWM. Find More history databases here

What databases can I use when I'm not at UWM?

BadgerLink is available at your school and public libraries and provides access to some of the same databases that UWM has. However, the interface may be different. One that works well for history is History Reference Center.
