Use World History (Gale in Context) or U.S. History (Gale in Context) to find many types of resources that you can use for your annotated bibliography.
Start your search by entering a keyword or phrase into the search box.
If you need topic ideas, click the Browse Topics link.
When you click a topic link, you may need to scroll down on the page in order to see all of the resources.
Depending on the topic, you will find academic journal articles, primary sources, reference (or encyclopedia) articles, biographies, etc.
If you search using a keyword such as colonialism, you may get too many results as this has been a recurring topic throughout history.
Once you open an article, look for the tools that allow you to get a citation, print, e-mail, save, and other options.
The username and password to access databases from off campus is similar to what you use to access the PCC campus portal (myPittCC) and Moodle. For the username, use the first part of your myPittCC email address only. DO NOT include @my.pittcc.edu. The password is exactly the same as what you use to log in to the campus portal. Generic logins are available to community residents with PCC library cards, and others who are enrolled in or are affiliated with PCC programs and continuing education courses.
