Help with U.S. History Research on the Internet
The web has many free sites with electronic versions or copies of original documents. You can also try using the advance searching templates provided by the search engine you are using.
The other thing you can do is type in your subject then continue by adding "primary sources". For example
Texas Rangers, primary sources
On Google you can also use the toolbar and go to "More" continue to "even more" scroll to "Specialized Search" and "Scholar".
The focus is on primary source collections from government agencies, universities, museums, libraries, and historical organizations.
To get started, click one of the topical tabs and begin browsing the websites.
Some of the links in "Finding Historical Images & Newspapers" do NOT work.
- The library is not responsible for the content of the selected sites.
- No endorsement is given to additional sites which are linked to by selected sites.
- It is a student's responsibility to accurately cite online materials used in research.
