Six Centuries of Primary Sources

A digital experience that feels like working with physical materials

Research shows that primary sources – government documents, archival collections, periodicals, newspapers, books and video, and more – are assigned across disciplines. These sources develop critical-thinking skills, allow students to draw their own conclusions and interpret secondary sources, aid in the understanding of a subject, inspire new thinking and improve academic results.

Access a (growing) wealth of coverage that includes 350 million pages with collections in emerging areas like LGBT studies, global issues and human rights.
