Historical abstracts via EBSCO

Historical Abstracts with Full Text covers the history of the world (excluding the United States and Canada) from 1450 to the present, including world history, military history, women's history, history of education and more. The database provides indexing of historical articles from journals back to 1955 and also includes access to full text for selected journals and books.


EBSCO Publishing has added text-to-speech (read aloud) support to all EBSCOhost databases. You can use this option with any full text article in HTML format. Please see 'How do I use Text-to-Speech?' for further details.


Access is available directly from this page by connecting to the Historical abstracts via EBSCO website - you'll be prompted to log in to MUSE as necessary.


If you experience any difficulties in using this eResource please call the Library HelpDesk on extension 27200 or email library@sheffield.ac.uk.
