To access Princeton's for-Princeton-affiliates-only resources subscriptions (e.g. electronic databases, e-books), in most cases all that's needed is to authenticate by entering your NetID and password when you try to access a resource through Princeton Library portals. In a few cases, resource access is based strictly on IP address. To access these from off campus you'll need to use Princeton's VPN or SRA (Secure Remote Access) systems. More information on off-campus access to these resources can be found here.
A primary source is part of the object of your analysis. In the case of WRI 188/189, the object of your analysis will be social, political and/or cultural phenomena related to urbanization and globalization. Your primary sources will be the documents through which you will examine these phenomena. Examples of likely primary sources for assignemnts in this course are verbal documents such as parliamentary or congressional proceedings and transcripts; caselaw; legislative documents; survey data; journalistic articles in newspapers and magazines; memoirs; postings on blogs and social media sites. Documents in other media, such as film or broadcast footage, radio broadcasts or podcasts, oral histories, pictorial or photographic images may also be valuable primary sources. Depending on the focus of your project and the nature of your approach, you may also choose to work with aesthetic texts, such as fictional prose narratives, feature films and dramatic works. This page provides links to resources useful for locating different types of primary sources.
