A primary source is something written or created in the same time period of an event or person in history. Some examples include the Gettysburg Address, Anne Frank’s diary, a photo taken during the Depression, or a newspaper article reporting on the 1912 sinking of the Titanic.
You may need to find primary sources for a history report, or maybe you read about an event or person and want to learn more. UAPL can help you get started with two of our databases!
Annals of American History contains thousands of primary documents that range from 1493 to present. Discover speeches, memoirs, historical accounts and more.
For sources covering the rest of the world, try one of our World History Databases: Ancient & Medieval Eras or The Modern Era. The Documents and Media section of a topic will have primary sources that can include political documents, letters, videos, and more.
These are just two of the many, many ways of finding primary sources. For example, try some of our other online History Resources. The Reference Department of the Main Library can also help you search. Contact us by phone, text or email, or just stop by!
