Where to find secondary sources?
A good starting point for locating secondary sources is your local library and record office. If you wish to purchase copies, those still in print will be available at bookshops and on the Internet. Second-hand bookshops and suppliers are also a useful place for locating some sources.
Some secondary sources may also be available on the Internet. For instance, on Google Scholar (scholar.google.com) you can search for scholarly literature from many disciplines and sources including papers, theses, books, abstracts and articles.
More information about finding sources can be found in the Tips and Hints section.
