According to University of California Berkeley: "Primary sources enable the researcher to as close as possible to what actually happened during an historical event or time period. Primary sources were either created during the time period being studied, or were created at a later date by a participant in the events being studied and they reflect the individual viewpoint of a participant or observer."
