About news

When would you use a primary source? 

While doing research for this class it's important to go back to the literature to get an academic perspective, but you'll also need to incorporate primary sources from the event or person you are interested in writing about.

Primary sources provide first-hand testimony or direct evidence concerning a topic under investigation. They are created by witnesses or recorders who experienced the events or conditions being documented.

Often these sources are created at the time when the events or conditions are occurring, but primary sources can also include autobiographies, memoirs, and oral histories recorded later.
