Initiatives to digitise primary source materials are increasingly gathering pace. The types of digital primary source materials that might be of interest to historians include the following:
- Digitised manuscript and printed documents (charters, chronicles, diaries, letters, memos, broadsides, etc.)
- Digitised printed contemporary publications (tracts, pamphlets, books, newspapers)
- Digital data and statistics (census, surveys, etc.)
A listing of these resources are in the History section of Databases A-Z. They are broken down by period.
