Find one piece of cultural anthropogical writing (travel log, missionary diary, or newspaper article) written and published before 1900.
Use the link below to see if Kenyon's library subscribes to a newspaper, magazine, or academic journal. You will be able to find out where we keep the magazine. Locations will include the the Current Periodicals (on the 3rd floor), the Bound Periodicals (on the 1st floor), the microfilm (on the 2nd floor), or online.
Our library catalog is called CONSORT. The library catalog is a list of everything the library owns. You may use the catalog to find books, journal/magazine subscriptions, videos, and music in the library (in the building or online). Kenyon shares its catalog with Denison University, Ohio Wesleyan University, and the College of Wooster.
Travel logs, diaries, and newspaper articles are what researchers call primary sources. But what is a primary source?
A Primary Source is a first-hand record of an event created by someone who experienced the events or conditions being documented. Very often these sources are created at the time when the events or conditions are occurring, but primary sources can also include autobiographies, memoirs, and oral histories recorded later. A primary source can be in any format (e.g., book, newspaper, data collection, print, online, etc...). Primary sources may vary between disciplines.
A Secondary Source typically analyzes, discusses, or describes the event pertaining to the primary source.
