Hot tip!

The single best way to identify relevant primary source material is to read widely in the secondary literature on your topic; scrutinize the notes and bibliography for published primary sources that you can access.

The Online Catalog & Primary Sources

Five College Library Catalog

As you search in the online catalog, watch for the words "personal narratives," "diaries," "interviews," "correspondence," "pamphlets," and "sources" as part of the subject headings; these may point you to published primary sources in the library collections.

Other clues may be buried in the title, authorship, date of publication, etc.
