Five Primary Source Options to Begin Your Research

         
"Primary sources are those texts and objects that come to us from the time period of interest".
- Lipartito, Kenneth. "Historical Sources and Data." Organizations in Time: History, Theory, Methods (2014): 284-304.       

 

The library catalog (One Search) and the newspaper and magazine databases listed are a good place to begin searching for primary sources. The Primary Sources - Advanced option will provide additional primary source options based on time period, location, and social groups.
