A primary source is a type of source sometimes required in papers and projects.  View the Types of Sources: Primary Sources research guide for more information.

Rererence and User Services Association (RUSA) has also published a guide to Primary Sources on the Web which is very helpful.

The Library of Congress (LoC) also has a Primary Source Analysis Tool which can assist in analyzing and understanding primary sources.
