Primary Sources are the raw materials of history. They are original documents or creative works generated during the time period under study. Often, but not always, primary sources contain or demonstrate the perspective of its creator as in a diary or a letter. However, documents and reports from governments or organizations, such as universities, are also primary sources as they express institutional viewpoints on issues grounded in a historical period. Now many digital collections of primary sources are available on the Web as digitized documents, openly accessible or as a subscription.
Examples of Primary Sources:
