Sociology: Archives & Primary Sources

What are primary sources?

Primary sources are first-hand accounts of a topic. They can include letters, social media posts, newspapers, diaries, recordings, witness accounts, legal documents, speeches and much more. In this guide, we list print and digital primary sources for social research. Some are available to you as a member of the University of Cambridge and some are openly available.
