Q. What are primary sources, and how do I find them?

Answer

A primary source is original material from a time period or event that does not contain any interpretation or analysis by later authors. Common primary source materials include speeches, letters, diaries, or images, but can also include social commentary such as newspaper or magazine articles from the time period of the original event.

See our Primary Sources guide for helpful suggestions on where to search for primary source materials.
