America: History & Life is a database of literature covering the history and culture of the United States and Canada, from prehistory to the present. With selective indexing for journals from 1910 to present, this database is a bibliographic reference tool for students and scholars of U.S. and Canadian history. Strong English-language journal coverage is balanced by an international perspective on topics and events, including abstracts in English of articles published in more than 40 languages. (For history outside of the United States and Canada, see Historical Abstracts.)

With over 800,000 records, Historical Abstracts is a resource that covers the history of the world (excluding the United States and Canada) from 1450 forward, including world history, military history, women’s history, history of education, and more.
