Using Primary and Secondary Sources in NHD Projects

Primary sources are so important to include in National History Day (NHD) projects! Along with our partners at National History Day and the White House Historical Association, we wanted to share strategies for researching them with students.

This recorded webinar from October 7, 2014, addresses the differences in primary and secondary sources, how to use primary sources, how to find primary sources, and what judges are looking for in annotated bibliographies and process papers. David Ferriero, Archivist of the United States of America, introduces the topic.

You can watch it on the National History Day YouTube Channel.

Find even more resources for NHD research from the National Archives on our NHD Resources page and other online and in-person events on our NHD Workshops page.
