Online text collections are primary sources. Primary sources have been generated within the time period you are studying. In this course, you may find yourself doing hands-on explorations with primary sources, as well as gathering information about such sources through interviews with staff at Heritage Mississauga and other local organizations listed in the neighbouring text box.
There are many collections or organizations you may wish to visit both online and in person. Curators at these institutions can help you find unique documents or point you towards new ideas.
These resources are not available online, and they will point you to documents that are also mostly in print. Despite lack of convenient access, they will offer unique documents well worth the search time.
