Primary sources are the raw materials of historical research - they are the documents or artifacts closest to the topic of investigation. Often they are created during the time period which is being studied (correspondence, diaries, newspapers, government documents, art) but they can also be produced later by eyewitnesses or participants (memoirs, oral histories). Please check with your professor about the use of primary sources in your research assignments.
More primary sources collections are available in the Primary Sources section of the guide.
