If you’ve browsed and searched the TPS-Barat Primary Source Nexus and still can’t find what you were looking for, feel free to contact us with questions about Library resources or strategies for teaching with primary sources. We also welcome you to leave a comment on any post.
You can get help directly from the Library of Congress too. The Ask a Librarian resource provides several different avenues to get your questions answered. There are links to email forms for a variety of Library divisions as well as options to chat online with a librarian about the following sections (Monday-Friday except federal holidays): American Memory & Digital References (2-4 pm EST) and Newspapers/Periodicals (2-3 EST). You might also want to review the Library’s Frequently Asked Questions.
Another great resource is the Library’s Virtual Reference Shelf, featuring selected online resources for research.
We’re all here to help you so please just ask!
