Primary Sources : A Window to the Past
We may see historical events one way, but how did people see it back then? Have you ever wondered what people at a given point in time thought about current events and issues? You'll always need to find today's scholarly articles on your research topic, but historical primary sources can help you to explore the historical context of your topic within its own time.
Try searching in one of our historical collections to find correspondence, diaries, logs, books, journals, and newspaper articles that respond to your topic from the past!
