For those (like you!) who study history, primary resources can be invaluable. They provide context and background, and they can tell the story of an event or time period from the viewpoint of someone who was a witness. Knowing where to look and how to search for primary resources can be a challenge, which is why we have created this guide. We will begin by defining primary resource and by giving you examples. From there, you can navigate this guide using the tabs on the left to learn about tools and resources that may help in your information hunt.
