Primary Sources


Working with primary sources can be an enriching and fascinating research experience, and we've got many different kinds of primary source materials available here in the University Library, both in print and online.

Your first stop for primary source research, especially regional research, is Special Collections. Special Collections include manuscripts, photographs, letters, collected papers, documents, media, journals and ledgers, original art, and a lot more. Many of these materials have been digitized; in order to work with materials in print, you'll need to make an appointment. Contact Special Collections for more information.

In addition to the rare and unique materials in Special Collections, we subscribe to many digitized collections of primary source materials.
