Primary sources are those that provide first-hand accounts of the events you are studying. They are written from the perspective of a participant or observer of those events. Examples include:

diaries

letters/correspondence

photographs

memos

newspaper/journal articles

speeches

interviews

memoirs & autobiographies

oral histories

narratives or personal narratives

To search for peer reviewed articles, you will want to search one or more of our online Research Databases at http://libguides.limestone.edu/alldatabases. For psychology, some suggested databases would be: 

Psychology & Behavioral Sciences Collection

SocIndex

Social Sciences Full Text

There is a check box for you to choose peer-reviewed journals. The location of this may vary depending on which database you use.
