ENG 1103 - College Writing & Public Life: Digital Primary Sources

Looking for primary sources?

Even if you're an experienced researcher, searching for primary sources online can be quite different than other types of information. If you get stuck, please don't hesitate to ask for help!

General Tips

  • If you can't find what you're looking in the resources linked on this page, don't worry! Try searching for your topic on Google with the words digital collection.
  • Digitizing collections is an expensive and time-consuming process for archivists. This may limit the amount of sources available on your specific topic. Try brainstorming more general areas and searching for those. For example, if you're searching for digitized photographs of one specific town, try broadening your search to the entire state.
  • Try searching for special collections / archives at a university or college local to the topic you're searching for.
