Need help finding primary sources for an essay or assignment? Check out our Primary Sources guide. Our guide will introduce you to our online databases and catalogues, as well as local archives you can visit to view and use primary sources.
Our Digital Archives Initiative (DAI) site includes some of the primary sources available from the library - such as the St. John’s Evening Telegram article “Britain Declares War!” published on August 6, 1914 - but we have much, much, much more for you.

While the sun was shining this summer, our web folks were sequestered in a tiny windowless room filled with computers and delved into code to build a new website to improve access, navigation and functionality. It even boasts responsive design, making it easy to use on a tablet or phone because we know you are busy and on the move.
Although we’re still hard at work on the website, we want to give you a sneak peek of what we’ve done and get your thoughts on it. Check it out!
