Finding Digital and Audiovisual Primary Sources

Both UH Digital Collections and the UH Audio/Video Repository contain primary source material. Some of the material is digitized from original documents, photographs, audiotapes, and videotapes. Other material is born digital, that is, it was originally created in an electronic format. (Definition from the Society of American Archivists Glossary). UH Digital Collections also contains some material that could be considered secondary sources, such as books and pamphlets.
