Primary Sources in E-Books & Databases: SABIN Americana

SABIN Americana includes over 29,000 works written about the Americas and published throughout the world from 1500 to 1926. It includes books, pamphlets, and other documents with original accounts of exploration, colonialism, slavery, military actions, and much more. It is a rich source of information about North and South America, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. Some Articles may be published languages other than English so you may want to restrict your searches to those languages with which you have facility.

For this course you will not want to avoid using SABIN Americana because of the wealth of primary and secondary material available. By using resources within SABIN Americana you will be getting about as close to the original event as is possible. Access is through the Catalog, GALILEO, and this LIBguide.
