Seeking the Source will show you how to collect and use primary source
material. It presents some guidelines Smithsonian folklorists have developed
over the years for collecting and using primary sources, especially from
our own families and friends. It features guides to conducting an interview,
sample lists of questions, ideas in presenting your findings, and the ethics
of collecting and using these sources. Look for our selections on further
readings to learn more about how to seek the source.
