Remember, on much of the World Wide Web there are no editors to decide what can and cannot be posted. Anyone can put anything on the general Web, but the information is not always useful or accurate. Evaluating your resources is always important, but for some websites, it is critical.
A primary source is a first-hand account of an event, time period, or philosophical era.
