In the Catalog:
Using the phrases "primary documents" or "primary sources" is not the best way to search for primary sources in the catalog.
Instead, construct searches using a keyword or name and any of the following terms:
Use WorldCat to identify primary source materials to request through Interlibrary Loan.
Primary documents are also often found in the footnotes, endnotes, or bibliography of a good secondary source. These will often lead you to the archives, special collections, and digitized collections where primary documents are located.
On the Internet:
To find primary documents on the Internet, use the word "archive" or the phrase "special collection" or "digital collection" along with your subject term in a search engine or consult the Online Repositories listed in the box below.
