History: Finding Information in History

Information Literacy

Looking for Other Research

Finding information

Journal articles are peer reviewed sources that are hugely important as they provide a far greater insight into specific subjects rather than the broad overview seen in books. 

Newspaper articles provide the information that was relevant at the time, it also gives primary data about what certain events were seen by the people at the time. 

Though it must be stated that not all sources are available on the internet. 

Finding Books

These are the links to find books in the DKIT library and other Libraries. 

It's a good idea to always start with our own Library.

If there is a book or article you need that is not held in DKIT you can apply for it on Inter Library Loan.  This means that we will borrow an item from another Library for you and make it available for up to 3 weeks.

As a member of DKIT you can avail of membership of Louth County Libraries through 1 Card 6 Libraries so check their catalogue too
