Primary sources are original records created at the time historical events occurred or could also be memoirs and oral histories of past events.
The internet has helped to make many of these sources widely available, some of the best sources are:
American Memory Project of the Library of Congress
The Avalon Project of Yale University
Digital History of the University of Houston
Digital Public Library
Making of America
World Wide Web Virtual Library
Don't forget about our campus-wide subscription to the New York Times: from 1851-present.
