Primary & Historical Sources

Collection of sources for original materials or documents written or created during the time period being studied. This can range from diaries and art to the text of laws, speeches, and news footage. Secondary sources may include bits of primary source material but will be more analytical of the event; the authors were not involved, either. Curated by the Lone Star College - University Park library.
