Primary Sources

Primary Sources in the Databases

Remember, the databases also contain primary sources. There are two ways to locate them:

1. Advanced Search: Click on the Advanced Search option. Enter in a keyword or phrase, then limit your search to Primary Sources under the content type and/or document type drop down menus.

2. Through a Topic Portal: If you are using a topic portal in Research in Context or World History in Context, scroll down until you see the Primary Sources heading. Alternatively, you can use the toolbar on the right to select Primary Sources.
