Finding Primary Sources
You can find primary sources for this topic in three places:
- Books: the stacks and Garver. Many of the books in the stacks and in Garver have primary sources in them. Look for words in the book's title like "a documentary history" or "sources." Also look for clues within the text like block quotes and distinct sections with a different author.
- Databases. Many of the databases you looked at in the Reference Sources tab have primary sources within them. Try playing with search filters to make sure you are looking at primary sources in the search results.
- Websites. Below are a few websites with primary sources. Make sure to note the difference between any introductory text and the primary source itself.
If you're not sure if you're looking at a primary source, just ask a librarian for help!
