Otterbein Resources

The following are databases that might be helpful AND are not available through your public or school library. You won't be able to use these resources (except possibly JSTOR) after you leave Otterbein's library.


Secondary Databases: May also have primary sources. Also check bibliographies.

Primary Databases: However, for some of these it would still depend on the time period. For example, an article about the Civil War from 1890 may be a secondary document, rather than primary.
