Advice on Finding History Sites

The sites listed below are in most cases directories of directories, each with links to many other sites. For example, under the Massachusetts Institute of Technology you will find the International Directory of University Home Pages. You should consult the MIT guide if you are unable to find a particular university on the Internet.

The sites are listed in alphabetical order, according to the name of the host institution. Sites within the same institution are shown in a hierarchy. In some cases an additional sponsor for the site is indicated, for example "American Library Association, via the University of Illinois at Chicago".

If you are unable to connect to a site or to utilize it effectively, try moving up through the higher levels of the hierarchy of the site's host institution. In the Directory each subordinate level in the hierarchy is indented, and preceeded with a dot of a different color. In the example below, for the USC Regional History Center, you should see 4 levels of indentation, with dots colored red, green, purple, and orange:

University of Southern California

University Library
Special Collections
Regional History Center

If you do not have the exact hierarchy for a particular site, you can often approximate the hierarchy by using your Web browsing program to shorten the Internet address of the site, from right to left, at each "/" slash mark. For example, if you cannot connect to:
"" try:
"" then try:
"" then try:
"" then try:

From the listing presented here, to find subject headings or descriptive terms such as "architecture", "archives", "ancient", or "Egypt", or to search for any of the words that appear on your screen within this document, use the FIND utility in your Web browsing program. (Most Windows-based programs include a FIND utility in the EDIT menu.) The description of any site with database subject searching will include the word "search". The descriptions of utilities for searching across the Internet include the phrase "Internet search utility" or "Internet search utilities".
