Primary Sources

Be careful when using websites to find primary sources. Many sites on the Internet will host both primary and secondary sources. Before using a document that you find online, be sure that you know whether it is a primary or secondary source. If you have questions about whether a specific source is primary or secondary, please contact a librarian or your instructor.
