What sources do you need?

What sort of research will you do?

Do you need current information or should you look at older material as well? For example: you might need to look at both the background of a topic and the current thinking.

A primary source provides firsthand evidence of an event or topic. Examples of a primary source include: a physical artefact (e.g. a fossil or furniture), a diary, an email, a journal article which contains original thought and/or discoveries, a newspaper article written at the time, a original document (e.g. a birth certificate), and a documentary record such photograph or a video.


Do you need secondary sources?

A secondary source is usually something that is produced after an event has happened. It may offer an interpretation or evaluation of a primary source. It may also provide commentary or discuss evidence. Examples of secondary sources include: a dictionary, an encyclopedia, a journal article which provides commentary (but does not contain original thought and/or discoveries) or a textbook.
