Primary vs. Secondary Sources
Secondary sources are sources which examine, critique, and analyze primary resources. Secondary sources are second-hand accounts of what happened in any given event or context. For instance, most textbooks, research monographs (books), peer-reviewed articles, dissertations, theses, and critical essays are secondary sources.
