This is useful in a power point to show beginning historians the categories of sources ie primary source material, secondary source material, etc.  Concise and cohesive.

This is a fun and quick walk through issues such as what sources are, how to find them, and what to do with them.

Technical Remarks:

At some points, such as when you mark off sources for manuscript and corporate etc. collections, you are not told if you leave any out. Overall, however, this is an excellent tool.
