Finding Nineteenth Century Publications

For your Research Informed Paper 1 (document linked below) You will need to find primary research on the topic in which you are interested. That means you need to find information sources, books (or personal accounts within books), newspaper or magazine articles, that were published contemporaneously with the topic or events you are researching. The list of links below connect you to information resources made available by the EIU Library. These and other resources can be found in the A-Z list of databases, and are collected here for your convenience. You will need to explore multiple resources. No single search will bring you the perfect set of results.
