Q. I am researching the history of clothing in 18th century France.
Start with the HISTORICAL ABSTRACTS database. This can be located by clicking on the gray Databases tab on the UHD Library home page (https://www.uhd.edu/library), clicking on the letter H, and then scrolling down to identify the database.
Before you start the search, go to the “limit your results” section below the search box. Change the language to English. Then, under “Historical Period from”, put 1700 in the first box and 1799 in the second box. Then start your search.
Try this search:
