History Subject Guide

Primary sources in Print

Find primary sources in the library catalog by:

  • Using the subject keyword "sources" in an advanced search as pictured below. 
  • Look for subject tags such as diaries, letters, memoirs, and accounts to find primary sources.

You can also read through secondary sources to find primary ones. Skim the notes and references. Use Interlibrary Loan to obtain items Trinity doesn't have. To find items at other libraries, search WorldCat.
