Primary and Secondary Sources Databases
A good place to start searching for primary sources is to select a database from the list below, Suggested Databases. Though not exclusively primary sources, the databases have been selected as primary source databases because they contain archival materials. When searching for primary sources, use the keyword in the first search box then in the following search box, use primary source material format words like "autobiography," "correspondence," "diary," "letter," or "speech."
Another way to search for primary sources in databases is to use the Primary Source Document option. In most EbscoHOST databases, there is a Publication Type box with a Primary Source Document option.
