History (Yale-NUS College): Articles/ Databases

Secondary Sources

Secondary sources interpret or analyze primary sources. Primary sources are first-hand accounts, whereas secondary sources are one or more steps removed from the event being studied. Textbooks, journal articles, and research books are examples of secondary sources. You will need to consult secondary sources to learn about how other scholars have viewed and interpreted the topic you are studying.
