No need to stress about researching your final paper. We've got you covered at the library, and at the end of this session, you'll have at least one secondary source and at least one primary source. In total, for this assignment, you will need at least 3 secondary sources and at least 2 primary sources, so you'll almost be halfway there!
Secondary sources include scholarly articles and academic books. These contain writings by experts analyzing events and giving their interpretation years after the historical event took place.
Primary sources are not scholarly in that they are first-hand accounts and artifacts created or used during the time period you are studying. Primary sources are the evidence that support your claims.
