Primary Sources

Primary sources present first-hand accounts or direct evidence. They are created by witnesses or recorders who experienced the events being documented, and can also include autobiographies, memoirs, and oral histories recorded later. In the case of artists, this could include studies, sketches, correspondence, and personal papers. 

Use the library catalog or ebook databases to find autobiographies, memoirs, and other primary sources.  Other useful primary source databases are linked here.
