AAS 384 | HIST 384 Slavery in US History and Culture

Primary Source Databases

The Library has a number of databases that contain primary source documenting the history of slavery in the United States. The first several databases listed are large portals to multiple primary source databases. We'll be using those for your class exercise. Following the "Portals" box, you'll also find additional databases organized by document type. If you have any questions don't hesitate to set up an appointment with your subject librarian, Erica Bruchko.
