Primary and Secondary Sources

Where to find Primary Sources in Print?

You may wonder where and how to find primary sources.  The Concordia University Texas Library offers some primary sources in print (and online) formats.  To find such sources, a good way to start is by heading to the online catalog from our Voyager system.  Try adding terms such as ‘memoir’ or ‘diary’ to your search query.  Searching using the keyword ‘autobiography’ is also often helpful.
