Welcome to the Library Services support pages for the History Department.
You will find lots of useful information on these pages about our print and online resources as well as the support on offer. Please use the tabs to navigate to more information about resources and services that are relevant to your subject area.
The Maughan Library tends not to hold recent exam papers for the Faculty of Arts & Humanities. These can usually be accessed via KEATS. If you are unable to find exam papers for the last few years, please contact your departmental office.
A small archive of older exam papers (generally 2009 and before) is available in the short loan room but we are expecting to dispose of these soon as they do not necessarily reflect the current curriculum.
See our World War One research guide.
In the Foyle Special Collections Library, please see also our online exhibitions:
Also special collections for history:
