A primary source is a document, recording or other source of information created at the time being studied, by an authoritative source, usually one with direct personal knowledge of the events being described.
Primary sources include diaries, letters, family records, statistics, speeches, interviews, autobiographies, film, government documents, or original scientific research.
For more detailed information, see the Primary Sources Research Guide.
Start with: How do I find newspaper articles?
Our newspapers in print and microfilm are listed on this research guide.
You can also look at the list of databases that contain electronic newspaper articles.
Woodruff Library has millions of pages of newspapers, government documents, manuscript and archival records, and other primary source collections in microformat. Microforms are a storage medium containing materials that are photographed at a greatly reduced size for ease of storage and preservation.
The most common types of microforms are microfilm, which resembles a pint-size movie reel; and microfiche, which looks like a large plastic index card. Our microform collections are listed in discoverE. They can be viewed, printed and scanned using special equipment located on Level 2.
It takes practice to search for and use microforms effectively - so ask for help!
When you first open discoverE, it defaults to using the Catalog tab. You should choose the Combined tab, which is the third from the left:
Databases like JSTOR and Academic Search Complete provide citations and/or full text of journal articles, books, and other materials. Emory University Libraries enable access to the contents of more than 400 databases. See our Databases page for a complete listing. For help with searching databases, see our Finding Articles at Woodruff research guide.
Access from off-campus is available only to current Emory University students, faculty and staff, and requires an Emory Network ID and password.
