Finding Historical Primary Sources

Faculty: Andrea Baer, History and Political Science Librarian 

Learning objectives:

  • Identify Internet and library resources for locating primary sources.
  • Identify and apply effective search strategies for locating primary sources.

Locating primary sources for historical research can be both exciting and challenging. There is no central location for all primary source material, and it’s not always easy to determine what search terms will lead you to the content you want. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn about good starting points for locating primary sources (both on the web and through the library) and will develop effective strategies for locating primary sources. This workshop includes time for hands-on practice and questions.

Skill levels for attendees: Little to no experience, Some experience

Software requirements: None
