What is Historiography?

Historiography deals with the writing of history. In the broadest sense, it is the study of the history of history (as it is described by historians).  Historiographers summarize changing ideas about and approaches to historical topics.  They also address why historians' ideas have changed over time.

This guide will help you identify a variety of research materials including historiographic research, both within and beyond Kraemer Family Library. Click on the tabs above to learn more about the wealth of resources and tools that the Library provides.


Before We Get Started

You'll be using a lot of Kraemer Family Library resources while researching your assignments. There are a few steps you need to take to ensure that your library use goes smoothly.

Set Up Your Library Account

You can't check out any books (or request books from other libraries) until you take your ID card to the circulation desk and activate your account.

Install the VPN

You can access electronic resources 24/7 from long as you are logged into the Library VPN (Transporter). Install it on your home computer as soon as possible.

Create an ILLiad Account

Need a journal article that we don't have access to? Create an ILLiad account so that you can request PDF copies from another library.
