As a college librarian, I often hear stressed-out students searching for primary sources say, "I'll take anything." Don't settle for just anything. There is a treasury of primary source material available electronically. Peruse my selection of 200-plus primary source sites by conducting a keyword search, exploring the tag cloud at left, or browsing by historical era. You can also visit my Delicious and Diigo sites to review my bookmarks. Here's hoping you find what you're looking for.

Elvis enlists

One of my favorite sites for digitized primary source material is the National Archives and Records Administration . In keeping the popular “in this day in history" theme, I’ll have you know that back on March 24 of 1958, draftee Elvis Presley joined the Army. One of the pieces of Elvis documentation you can find on the National Archives website is the “Acknowledgement of Service Obligation” signed by Elvis 52 years ago today.
