Primary Sources in Library Catalogs
Primary sources of all types can also be found in our regular, circulating books, in special collections, and beyond. Here are few ways to find primary texts and sources by using our own Library Search.
1. Use the author search to find books we have by a particular author, politician, journalist or another type of historical witness
2. Do an advanced keyword search in The Library Search and then limit by publication year under “limit your search”) (note: you can also limit by language and many other ways)
Honnold/Mudd has a paper collection of British documents that includes Parliamentary Papers, State Papers, the Royal Manuscript Collection and More. This collection is uncataloged and somewhat hidden, just east of the multi-tier stack on the first floor of the Mudd side. An appointment with the history subject specialist is recommended for first-time navigators of this information.
Honnold Special Collections and Aeon
A rich source of primary materials is Honnold/Mudd Special Collections . Please sign up for a reader's account with AEON, which lets you request materials in Special Collections before you arrive.
