What do we mean by primary sources?
Why are they important for students?
How do you find them at Queen’s?
During this workshop Deborah Sherlock (Subject Librarian, HAPP) and Louisa Costelloe (Assistant Librarian, Special Collections) will take you through what to expect (and how to avoid pitfalls) when dealing with primary sources. We will look at key issues such as navigating Special Collections at Queen’s, using primary sources databases, evaluating sources and citing primary sources in your academic work.
