Finding primary documents
One excellent website offering access to primary documentation is Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database, sponsored by Emory University and others.
See also a library subscription database titled Slavery and Anti-Slavery: A Transnational Archive.
Then there is the archive of works published in English prior to 1700, called Early English Books Online, and for the eighteenth century, Eighteenth Century Collections Online, both made available through library subscription.
Google Books is a rich source for primary documents.
Reference works (good for generating topics and recommending sources)
Authoritative primary and secondary commentary in books
Authoritative secondary commentary in articles
Websites more likely to be scholarly
Citing sources in Chicago style (foot/endnotes and bibliography format)
Articles via interlibrary loan
Journal articles not found in Trexler Library can be ordered on interlibrary loan.
