New primary source databases

Have you ever wondered what women's lives were like in Ireland in the 1700's?
How about the daily life and concerns of a Civil War soldier?
Or what it was like to explore the Hudson River with Hudson himself?

Now you can find out -- the College Libraries have subscribed to a collection of databases called The Street, which contains a bunch of really fascinating primary source documents in several categories -- there's a database of British and Irish Women's Letters, one on Civil War Letters and Diaries, a collection of documents regarding Early Encounters in North America, and more -- check out the collections on our Alexander Street Press page.

If you're looking for other primary source material online, start with our History Research portal page, which has links to tons of reliable online sites and library resources to help you with your work.
