Finding Digital Primary Sources at UCI

Digital primary sources are found in online collections that are usually grouped by some kind of theme, such as a particular period of time, geographic region, culture, or community.

UCI Libraries has access to many different digital collections of primary sources. We have so many collections, that we have a separate web page where they are all listed!
