If you are looking for primary source databases beyond what in on this guide's home page, see this list below. This is a great starting point for finding primary resources, but it is not comprehensive of all primary resources available to you through McNairy Library! If you're looking for a list of all our History primary source resources, visit our A-Z Databases list of History primary source databases.

Finding Primary Sources

You can find primary sources (first-hand historical accounts from people who experienced it) using these databases. Each database will contain different primary sources, so be sure to search multiple databases to find what you need!
