Searching Primo for primary and / or secondary sources can be difficult because search results invariably return both; unfortunately, there is no button or easy way to search for only primary or secondary sources.
To remedy this, try using in your searches the following non-exhaustive list of genres / subjects, as either search terms (keywords or subjects) or facets ("Type of Resource" or "Subject"):
also try Letters
also try Memoirs
Caricatures and cartoons.
Songs and music.
also try Autobiography.
And any others that you think of!
