The Peggy Helmerich Library will be closed temporarily for light renovation. We anticipate the closure to last several weeks. During the closure, any items you have placed on hold will be sent to Hardesty Library.
Whether you're interested in the people of the 20th Century or 20 centuries ago, we've got you covered. The library has two databases that allow you to learn about the life, culture and events of the past. Daily Life through History is a comprehensive source for information from the beginning of recorded history to the present, while Pop Culture Universe focuses on the fads, trends, and news of the last hundred years.
Both databases allow you to search by time period (either era or decade, depending on the database), and are loaded with articles, videos, primary documents, and analysis. They also have an advanced search feature that you can use to narrow down to specific time frames and subjects.
