As with any history topic, books and book chapters on ancient history topics are an essential resource when doing research.
I always like to look for books first, since they are more likely to give you background or overview of a topic.
Our library catalog is ntegrated into the same system (Library Search) that brings back articles, but you can still search just the catalog, if you want. The search box below is customized to do that.
After you search, you may still want to limit to just books, as our catalog does include other materials like audio/visual materials.
We only own a small percentage of books that have been published about ancient history!
We have a system (free for students) called EZ-Borrow that we use to get books from other libraries. It usually takes 2-3 business days for the books to arrive.
Additionally, you may run across scholarly book reviews both in Historical Abstracts and Library Search (the main library resources for finding scholarly journal articles).
