About This Guide

The purpose of this site is to give students a jumping-off point to get started on their history research by offering search options and links for finding primary and secondary sources across a wide range of historical and geographical topics. It is by no means meant to be a complete list of these sources. There are pages that focus on Finding Primary Sources, Finding Secondary Sources as well as providing other Research Help. As always, if you're not sure if a particular source qualifies as a primary or secondary source, talk to your professor or librarian.
