A general guide to historical research

Primary Sources in Databases

UK Libraries has purchased a number of e-resources or databases which specialize in primary sources for historical research.  Take some time to get to know these - you’ll be glad you did!  This list represents some important ones but is not exhaustive.  There are many more primary source databases to which the Libraries subscribes.  You can find more using the "Databases" link on the Libraries homepage.  Newspaper databases also can be considered primary source databases for historical research.  To see more information on those visit the Finding Articles page in this guide.
