Local Primary Sources

Libraries, museums, historical societies, university special collections, and other repositories all contain primary resources. Many share some resources in online digital collections. Searching for museums, historical societies, and libraries in the geographic area relevant to course content is a good way to identify relevant primary source materials. Contact a librarian for assistance with locating primary source documents tied to specific people, events, or locations.
