Spanish Empire: Library Reserve
The following is a list of books that I have put on reserve in the university
library for History 360/560. They will be useful for the development of your
project bibliography and for gaining an orientation to the demands of your
project. In order to evaluate the value of books that appear useful for your
research, you should consult book reviews in major scholarly journals. I have
provided a list of some of the scholarly journals in
the Eli M. Oboler Library of Idaho State University.

Although the library has the following valuable works, I have not put the
relevant volumes on reserve because they are a bit too dated to be completely
useful for purposes of bibliographic work or orientation: the Cambridge
History of Africa, the Cambridge History of Islam, and the
UNESCO General History of Africa.
