The best place to start your research is InfoHawk+, UI's online library catalog. Not every item in the library's holdings is cataloged, but InfoHawk+ will provide many resources for your research. If you have problems getting useful results from InfoHawk+, please reach out to your librarian, Rita Soenksen.
Don't forget to utilize the bibliographies and citations from resources that you find. If a scholar is writing about a topic that interests you, consult the resources that they used. That's part of the reason that there are citations! You can find many great sources in the bibliographies of your required readings and other publications relating to your topic or author.
Primary Sources are either the text itself or from the time period when the text was written.
Secondary Sources comment on the text and reflect on it from a different point in history; these are often scholarly, but not always. The databases below allow you to narrow your search to include only peer-reviewed secondary sources, a requirement for your annotated bibliographies.
