Finding Primary Sources

Use the links on this page to search physical library collections, as well as digital libraries.  If you are looking for a specific author or title, try doing a search on WorldCat First Search (for books) or on ArchiveGrid (for manuscripts and archival collections).

Google Books

Google Books is extremely useful, because it searches the complete text of a book. It can help you find books that may not come up in the library catalog. When you find a book that looks good, then do a "Title starts with" search in SEARCH to see if the Library has it.

As of 2019, Google Books contained over 40 million scanned books. Many from before 1925 are available full-text.
