Primary sources are the raw material upon which critical, analytic, and historic studies are based. These sources are the evidence left behind by participants or observers. Primary sources enable the researcher to get as close as possible to the truth of what actually happened during an historical event or time period. They present original thinking, report a discovery, or share new information. (Note that the definition of a primary source may vary depending upong the discipline or context.)
