Here are a few possible books to use in various areas of world history.
Do you need a specific book on a topic and the library doesn't carry it? If you have some time you may want to consider: Interlibrary Loan and Document Delivery. The library will try to get a book for you from another library for a short period of time. Some rules do apply about what can be requested. To make a request, go to the Interlibrary Loan login page.
