Accessing and Using Primary Sources

Interpretation and analysis of primary sources is a core defining practice for historians.  The Primary Sources Research Guide is both a brief tutorial on primary sources in the humanities and a guide to how to search for and use the materials.

Each of these Research Guides has a Primary Sources page which includes the resources which are most relevant to the particular area.
