Finding Primary Sources and Artworks

You can find primary sources and artwork related to this topic in three places:

  1. Books: the stacks, eBooks, and sometimes Garver. Many of the books in the stacks, eBooks available through the library catalog, 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.
  2. Databases. Those listed below contain primary sources. Remember, not every item in these databases will be the RIGHT primary source for you. Try playing with search filters to make sure you are looking at sources from the right time period.
  3. 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!
