    Historians distinguish between primary and secondary sources.  Primary sources are materials produced at the time the events that you are studying took place, or materials generated by the historical actors themselves. Examples include speeches, diaries, autobiographies, newspaper accounts written at the time, government records, and eyewitness reporting.

    Guides to using primary sources: 

    Making Sense of Evidence (CUNY and George Mason).

    Analyzing Political Cartoons (Library of Congress). Many topics in this series of Teacher's Guide to Primary Sources

    Secondary sources are accounts of the past written by non-participants.Examples include textbooks, most other books, biographies, encyclopedias, interpretive journal articles.
