HI 400 Research Seminar

A Library Research Guide for HI 400.

How well do you understand Primary & Secondary Sources?

This tutorial was designed by the Ithaca College Library to test (and improve!) your ability to identify primary and secondary sources. You will be presented with a number of scenarios and asked to classify sources as primary or secondary for the purposes of that situation. There is no grade for the test, it is for your benefit and understanding.
