Caribbean Studies: Primary Sources

A guide for those interested in the literature, culture and history of the Caribbean.

Primary Source Archives and Databases

Primary sources provide firsthand evidence of historical events. They are generally unpublished materials such as manuscripts, photographs, maps, artifacts, audio and video recordings, oral histories, postcards, and posters. In some instances, published materials can also be viewed as primary materials for the period in which they were written. For more information, see NYU Libraries Research Services page.
