A primary source is a document or physical object written/created during the moment in time you are interested in researching. A primary source provides information directly from the source (a book written by Adolf Hitler). A secondary source provides information indirectly (a historian's recounting of research done on Hitler).
American University gives an excellent guide to determine the differences between primary and secondary sources here.
Today's fun find in primary source land! This should change daily/weekly/monthly, depending upon that topic that the researcher is working in a the time.
