Finding Primary Sources in the TCC Library Catalog

Use the Advanced Search option on the TCC Library Catalog (left side of the library homepage).  Clicking this will take you to a page which has two Search filter lines.

First off select the eBooks option at the top. Use the Any field keyword search for the terms “primary sources” and/or “primary documents” in the first field and then the subject of your inquiry in the second field.
