Answer

You can find primary sources in the library catalog and many databases by:

  • Using an advanced search. Change the field to subject and enter "sources" as pictured below. 
  • You can also search for particular kinds of sources, including: correspondence, diaries, early works to 1800, interviews, pamphlets, periodicals, personal narratives, and speeches.

Using the example above as a template, you can replace "china" with "otto von bismarck" in order to locate primary sources about him. You can also search WorldCat in order to locate primary sources not held by Trinity's library. Use interlibrary loan to borrow them.

You can also scan the bibliographies of secondary sources. Scholars cite the primary sources that shaped their arguments; let them point you to primary sources.

If this doesn't answer your questions give me a shout at mhughes@trinity.edu.
