Primary sources

A primary source provides a first hand account of a topic or an event from the people that experienced it.

Primary sources can include: speeches, diaries, letters, interviews, radio and television broadcasts created at the time of the event, posters, paintings, maps, photographs, pamphlets, legal and official documents, survey data, and manuscripts.

This guide highlights some of the archives you can use to access this type of material.
