"Primary sources are materials in a variety of formats, created at the time under study, that serve as original evidence documenting a time period, event, people, idea, or work. Primary sources can be printed materials (such as books and ephemera), manuscript/archival materials (such as diaries or ledgers), audio/visual materials (such as recordings or films), artifacts (such as clothes or personal belongings), or born-digital materials (such as emails or digital photographs). Primary sources can be found in analog, digitized, and born-digital forms.
Primary sources provide compelling, direct evidence of human activity." - ACRL Guidelines for Primary Source Literacy
Baylor Libraries can help you find, access, and incorporate these unique resources into your research.
