Databases that only include primary sources

Use these databases to find historical documents, speeches, etc. Newspaper articles are primary source only when they were written at the time of an event. Retrospective articles (looking back at events of the past) are not primary source.

Databases with several types of sources

Each of these database. works differently. Start by going to Advanced Search, then look for a button or checkbox that says Primary Sources, or Documents.
