Secondary Sources

Secondary sources are resources produces in a later time period that comment on, collect, review, analyze, explain or interpret primary sources (e.g. books, scholarly articles, film databases like AFI). Take a close look at secondary sources' bibliographies and you will often find that they contain primary sources.

For your first assignment, use secondary sources as a guide to find primary sources. Avoid using the insights from the secondary sources - your goal is to make your own connections between the primary resources (e.g., film reviews, promotional ads, newspaper articles, trade magazine articles, advertising in trade magazines or newspapers).
