History: Primary Sources

Resources for research in history.

Using Primary Sources

Locating primary sources can be overwhelming when first learning how to access archival collections, both in-person and remotely.  Archives function differently from libraries - open hours for in-person research are typically limited, and materials within our holdings do not circulate. The information below will guide you through the process and get you started on your research.  If you need additional assistance, contact us at (208) 282-3249 or isuarchs@isu.edu and we will help you!
