Scholarly journals are often located inside library databases. From the library homepage, hover over the Search & Find dropdown menu and select Databases. We organize our databases by name, format, frequency of use, and subject, so we will want to look by subject -- in this case, history.

Since this is about Texas history, we might want to look at Texas Reference Center or U.S. History in Context or InfoTrac U.S. History Collection.

Once you've chosen a database, provide some keywords to search for. Without knowing anything about what kinds of information you need, I am at a bit of a loss to suggest anything. Reply back to this message or ask your professor for suggestions or just try searching for any terms you might be interested in.

If you are off-campus when you try to access a database, you will be taken to a login page where you need to enter your HCC "W" number (for students) or your first and last names (for faculty/staff) and personal password. Once you've done this and successfully authenticated, you are redirected to the database.
