[History Guide]

The History Guide, located at the Lower Saxony State and University Library, Göttingen (Germany), is an Internet-based subject gateway to scholarly relevant information in history (main area Anglo-American History). It is meanwhile maintained in cooperation with the InformationsWeiser Geschichte of the Bavarian State Library.
Resources are described and evaluated with a set of metadata. New resources are continuously added to the database, already cataloged ones regularly double-checked and updated.
The History Guide is part of the Virtual Library of Anglo-American Culture.

  • The History Guide was originally developed as the Anglo-American History Guide within a broader project funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG [German Research Foundation]), the so-called SSG-FI project (SonderSammelGebiets-FachInformationsprojekt). If you are interested in more detailed information about this project and about the background of the History Guide you can get a detailed project documentary as PDF file (only in German) or have a look at the former SSG-FI project homepage (no longer updated).
