How can you find additional primary resources?

  1. A Google search can normally bring these resources to light. Try this trick:
    • Add "site:.edu" after your search term to limit to university resources, like LibGuides or university library collections.
    • Add "site:.gov" after your search term to limit to U.S. government resources. You can also add .eu for European resources, or look up the domain for any particular country.
    • Add "site:.org" after your search term to limit to organization sites. Note: not all organizations are credible!! However, many museums use this domain.
  2. Ask a librarian!
