This guide is a GREAT starting place for your research. If you find that any of the resources listed are behind a paywall and you can't access them, you can always search for the items at UNC -- just use the main search box on the Libraries' website. Or you can always contact us and we'd be happy to help you find it.
Start with a keyword search in the catalog. Once you have located a relevant item, you can look at the Subjects in the record and follow those links to find related books. You can also refine your results by using the facets on the left side of the screen.
To find primary resources, you can add any of the following keywords to your search: letters, diaries, speeches, newspaper articles, autobiographies, oral histories, government and organizational records, statistical data, maps, photographs, motion pictures, sound recordings, advertisements, and artifacts.
