The libraries provide digital access to large collections of maps, photographs, historical newspapers, and other primary sources.
How you find and use them will differ by the type of materials and the source of the digital collection. Some are subscription-based resources that the libraries provide, some are materials that the libraries have digitized and make available through the USC Digital Library, and others are freely available online.
This research guide is a useful starting point for working with primary sources generally and includes information about online collections: https://libguides.usc.edu/primarysources/home.
Archives Unbound is an example of a digital resource for topical, specialized collections.
