Primary Vs. Secondary

Primary Sources – Original, first-hand accounts of a subject or an event, primary sources may also come from a person who lived at the time of the event but was not an eyewitness. Examples of primary sources include: newspapers, diaries/journals, letters, interviews, speeches, news footage, autobiographies, art, photographs, poetry, music, and three dimensional artifacts.

Secondary sources – Scholars create secondary sources by doing research using primary sources. Examples of secondary sources include: books, encyclopedias, scholarly journals, magazines, and newspapers. Secondary sources help gather background information and gain an understanding of what historians already know about a topic area.
