Locating primary sources for a history assignment

You have several options to find primary sources.

1) Check the sources used in the history books and articles you have found on your topic: check out the notes and the bibliography (what documents did the authors use? where can they be found?)

2) Search digital libraries and archives directories to find online digital archives on your topic:
3) Explore the many websites that offer digitized copies of original primary sources. See the list on the history research guide for a sample of useful sites or contact a librarian.

4) Use books at Kresge Library that compile primary sources. See a tutorial on finding primary sources at Kresge Library or ask a librarian for assistance.
