Our Long Reads show how primary sources can be used when researching broad topics. 

Primary sources can expand a research project, uncover new ideas, and produce new conclusions that add to existing materials. In these pieces, we apply our archives to topics to show how they can supplement existing research, become a platform to explore under-researched areas within an overall topic, and provide information that may not be covered in existing secondary sources.
