Locating Primary Source Material

  • In addition to materials in the Sophia Smith Collection (sse link at bottom), there is an abundance of primary source material in Neilson Library.
  • Use secondary literature for leads on primary sources.
  • As you search the online catalog; watch for the words "personal narratives," "interviews," "correspondence," "diaries," "pamphlets," and "sources" as part of the subject headings. Other clues may be buried in the title, authorship, date of publication, etc.
