Finding Primary Sources

In this class, we will use three methods to identify primary sources on topics in ancient and medieval history.

  1. Finding a scholarly encyclopedia article that lists primary sources in its bibliography
  2. Finding a scholarly encyclopedia article that lists primary sources in its text
  3. Searching library catalogs for primary sources
    • Search the SU Library Catalog
    • Search the Library of Congress Catalog
    • Use "primary source" terms to modify your search, such as:
      source? primary? document?
      correspondence letter? diar?
