  • Locating Primary Sources Bulldog OneSearch
  • Bulldog OneSearch has Primary Sources! Many of you are familiar with using Bulldog OneSearch to locate resources such as academic journal articles and popular, news articles. Bulldog OneSearch has primary source material dating back to 1918. This includes:  Newspaper articles written during the time of the event.  Academic Journal articles written during the time of the event.  Some letters, oral histories, and legal documents.
  • How do I locate these Primary Resources? Search for your topic using just the name of your event, person, or issue.
  • Choosing the correct limiters…. One option is to use the Primary Source Documents limiter. This limiter is located in the Source Types limiting box.
  • Choosing the correct limiters…. Another limiting option is to use the date limiter by setting the date parameters to reflect the time period your event took place. Remember that Bulldog OneSearch only lets you go back as far as 1918.
  • Choosing the correct limiters…. It is recommended that you use both limiting strategies separately and together. Each search, whether using the limiter alone or both together, will provide you with a very different result list. The Primary Source Document limiter may exclude some of the newspaper coverage from that time period. The date limiter may exclude a useful primary source document that has not been tagged with a particular year.
