help for finding secondary and primary sources for a research paper

Overview

Two Conjugate Pages from a Manuscript of the Qur'an

The HS5328 guide is designed to help you find sources to complete your research project.  This guide includes databases and website to help you locate:

  1. secondary sources - articles and books analyzing a historical event or person.
  2. primary sources - documents or other artifacts created at the time being studied (letters, newspapers, personal or group papers) or created later by participants (autobiographies, oral histories).
