Primary Sources vs. Secondary Sources

Finding Primary Sources in our catalog

There are many collections of primary sources in Cox Library. The key to finding them is phrasing your search very carefully. You may not be able to find primary sources for specific people or incidents; in that case, you will have to BROADEN your search.

For example, if you were researching for primary sources about the PONY EXPRESS, you could try searching WESTERN UNITED STATES SOURCES. Adding sources to the search will look for primary sources.
