Q. Where do I find primary sources?


Search the Library Catalog to find primary source material in the SCCC libraries. Some examples of search terms that locate primary materials are listed below.

art - correspondence - diaries - drama -experiments - fiction - interviews - letters - manuscripts - personal narratives - research studies -speeches

Primary sources are characterized by their content.  They may be available in their original format, microfilm/microfiche, digital format or published format. For example, the Constitution of the United States is a primary source that is available in many formats.  Likewise, the Mona Lisa (painting)  is an original work of art that may be viewed in digitized format or published in a book.
