How to find primary sources in Catalyst
There is no way to limit search results to "primary sources" in Catalyst, but there are a couple of ways to identify primary sources on a results page if you know the type of primary sources you are searching for.
Using Catalyst main search box:
Type in your keyword and hit search
On your results page, on the left-hand side, browse through "Material Types" and "genre/form."
Using Catalyst advanced search:
Using the Catalyst "advanced search," type in your KEYWORD/S and limit to "subject."
In the second search box below, add additional terms such as "personal narratives," "memoirs," or "maps," depending on the type of primary source you are hoping to find. Limit this second search box to "genre." For examples, you can search for Roman Empire (subject) and maps (genre).
Composed of contemporaneous letters and diaries, oral histories, interviews, and other personal narratives, the series provides a rich source for scholars in a wide range of disciplines. In selected cases, users will be able to hear the actual audio voices of the immigrants.
