HIS 117 & 118 - World Civilizations

This guide provides resources to support students studying the world's major civilizations.

Books & eBooks

Scholarly journal articles typically have a narrow topic focus and are often research studies conducted in a specific area, whereas a book (whether print or electronic) is more likely to give you a broad overview of a culture's mythology, and may also include individual chapters on specific deities and archetypes within that mythology. 

Online Library Catalog



You can find books and eBooks by using the search box provided above to search the Online Library Catalog. The catalog is a list of all the print resources the library has (including print books, print journals, video games, audio books, and more) and also includes a record for most of our eBooks.
