Primary Source Search

You can locate records for primary sources within the HBLL catalog by using the specific keyword "sources" within the "subject" field.

By combining that word with other relevant terms elsewhere, e.g., "1848 Revolution" you can can find relevant primary sources lurking in the Harold B. Lee Library.

These may include diaries, manuscripts, transcriptions, translations and other items considered to be primary sources.
