Research in History
This LibGuide provides a guide to the tools available to the Cedar Crest community for research of North American and world history. A link to the History Department's website is provided to offer more information on the programs of study and courses offered, as well as internship and research opportunities. The LibGuide also provides samples and instructions for the access and use of books, eBooks, reference tools, journals and databases.
Library databases and full-text articles may be accessed from off campus.
Follow the directions below:
1) select the resource you want to use from a LibGuide or the library website
2) on the “EZproxy” login screen
3) enter your campus network login credentials
NOTE: Your EZproxy login is the same as your Campus Network login; also, your Email login and your Canvas login--without the @cedarcrest.edu. It is NOT your My CedarCrest login.
If you encounter a problem or need assistance with research questions, contact Cressman Library Information Services at 610-606-4666 (ext: 3536).
The History Major and Minor at Cedar Crest
Gaining a historical perspective on our global society will serve you well in any career.
An education in history will prepare you to participate knowledgeably in the world around you on a local, national, and global level. As a member of an increasingly interconnected world, you will benefit greatly from an in-depth exploration of how and why societies came to be where they are today. By understanding what has driven the choices made in the past, we can better understand the circumstances of the present—a perspective that that will serve you well as an employee, leader and responsible citizen.
Majoring in history at Cedar Crest College will prepare you for graduate studies or a career in a variety of fields such as historic preservation and restoration, education, government, communications, the social services, and business.
