Is there a guide for finding primary sources?

We feature several pages that can help you find primary sources in the Library and beyond.

A good first step is our guide to Finding Historical Primary Sources. It includes information on a number of specific formats:

Books Autobiographical/ interviews Magazines News Articles
Newspapers by city Newspapers by title Public opinion polls Speeches
Organizational records Government agencies Congressional Census
Manuscripts Photos Audio Videos/DVDs
Movies Fiction Cartoons Advertisements


There is also a separate guide for media-related primary source materials

These websites offer digitized primary source documents and images:
