Historical research sources can be found in a variety of places. Your history textbook is a great place to start - just to get a general understanding of the historical event you plan to research. Once you determine a topic, you will need to take a look at the library's research databases as well as some reputable websites to find information to fill in any gaps in knowledge that you have. Try to find a variety of primary and secondary sources to show that you have thoroughly researched the topic and developed a deep understanding of the historical event.
These websites provide free access to a variety of primary sources that have been digitally archived online.
For off-campus access to the library databases, you will need to enter either your 14-digit library barcode from the back of your LSC student ID card or sign in with your MyLoneStar email address and password.
Don't have a 14-digit library barcode? Request one online. Your library barcode will be emailed to your LSC email address within 48 hours.
Use BOOLEAN SEARCHING to improve your search results in the research databases. Using the boolean operators AND, OR, & NOT will make you a more successful researcher.
