Primary Sources - Digital History Collections


Welcome to a draft of a new library history guide that lists collections of primary sources. It is a work in progress. We are continuing to add links, provide brief descriptions, and rearrange sections as needed.

We are moving the lists of primary sources listed on our current guides to this one guide.

This guide will be listed on the EMU Library's main page listing our research guides and on an upcoming redesigned history guide on January 3, 2022. The other guides will no longer be available after that date.
