Primary and Secondary Sources

Scholarship is a conversation, and one of the ways that conversation is conducted is through publications. Primary literature starts the conversation by presenting original research, scientific findings, first-hand accounts of an event, or other original work. Secondary literature continues the conversation by interpreting, summarizing, analyzing, or commenting on primary literature. The following video will help you distinguish between these two types of information sources.
