Primary Sources

  • Fordham’s Internet History Sourcebook collection is a good place to start
    • The sourcebooks are divided geographically and then into time period & theme
    • Just make sure you’re within the time period recommended for your topic (do pay attention to dates)
  • Archive.org is fully open source and often has translations of primary source texts.
    • The translations tend to be a bit old.
    • Check the dates and try to find the most recent.
