Secondary sources analyze a scholarly question and often use primary sources as evidence.
Secondary sources include books and articles about a topic. They may include lists of sources, i.e. bibliographies, that may lead you to other primary or secondary sources.
Databases (see Locate scholarly articles below) help you identify articles in scholarly journals or books on a particular topic.
To locate resources written about specific events, people, years, etc. try keyword and subject searching in the UW Libraries Search box above. Combine place names, personal names, and/or years to find resources relevant to your topic.
