Google Books

Google Book Search allows you to search the full-text of books. Many books in the public domain (not subject to copyright) will be available in the full-text. These older books will be primary sources if they were written by someone who observed or participated in a historical event.
Tips for locating primary sources with Google Books:
  • Click the link for Advanced Search and search with someone who observed or particpated in the event as an author
  • One option for locating primary source is to set the date range to a time that is relatively close to the historical event that you are researching.

HathiTrust Digital Library is another resource for searching the full-text of books and obtaining the full-text of books in the public domain.
