Mexican Revolution: Researching Revolution

Making Use of Your Resources

Getting Started

Not quite sure what databases to use while you're getting started? You can always take a look at the Latino/Latin American Studies guide and the History guide--and we've got some tips and tricks right here as well.

Central Index, which searches across all our databases (and more), is a great place to begin your search for scholarly articles.

The Mexican Revolution is a pretty big topic. Once you've started with your big topic, you may, therefore, want to narrow down so your results are more specifically geared to your area of interest. Curious? Check out some of these sample searches!

Want to run your own search? You can copy and paste search strings into your favorite database (or the book catalog).

Looking for historiography? Try "Mexican Revolution" AND historiography
