Primary Sources: United States: Diaries and letters

Digital diaries and letters

Two ways to find primary sources acquired by the Library

1. This search targets records from Omni, the Library's catalogue, describing primary sources. Give it a try.

  • Run the pre-configured search. THEN ...
  • In the 2nd row add your own keyword(s) that relate to your topic. Separate keywords with AND to ensure all terms appear in the records you retrieve.

Here's an example using poverty AND laws

2. The Databases page has an All Database Types drop down menu. Select "Primary Sources" to retrieve database offerings.
