HIST 485 - Caton: Primary Sources

Jr./Sr. Seminar: Colonialism in Asia

Finding Primary Sources

A basic guide on how to identify primary source material is available here (from the Library How-To pages).

One good search strategy that is useful in Encore, Magnus or any other library catalog, is to add a term like "sources", "documents", "memoirs", etc. to your keyword or Library of Congress subject term.
