WRI 207: Everyone's an Expert: Primary Sources

This is a library research guide for Keith Shaw's WRI 207 course, Everyone's an Expert.

Finding Primary Sources

Primary sources are original works. For your assignment, you'll be using a work of political theory as a lens to examine a topic, and will be selecting primary sources to establish your case. A primary source in this case can be many things: a speech, campaign material, diary entries, a newspaper article, a physical object, a film, a song. This is a fantastic moment to get creative and think about your intended field of study.
