Primary source research is inquiry-based. This means that you will be asking questions based upon what you observe in the primary sources. You won't go into a collection with an argument in mind, or looking for a specific thing. Rather, you will lead with curiosity and allow the materials you find to guide you to new questions, new connections and new knowledge.
The best way to make the most out of your interactions with these collections is to keep a detailed research journal each time you handle materials.
