Primary Sources

Need primary sources for your class?

The Library of Congress American Memory Project offers primary documents related to American history.

The Avalon Project offers documents related to law and treaties all over the world, from treaties with North American Indians to the Nuremberg War Crimes trial transcripts.

How about European Primary Sources? EuroDoc offers a drill-down menu to find historical documents from Western European countries including historical newspapers, manuscripts, and more.

Don’t forget that our very own DPS databases include options for primary documents. Newsbank  offers historical newspapers for browsing or searching by topic and the ABC-CLIO database’s “Analyze” option offers a variety of primary sources for students to browse and view.
