What is a Tertiary Source?

Tertiary sources generally provide an overview or summary of a topic, and may contain both primary and secondary sources. The information is displayed as entirely factual, and does not include analysis or critique.

Tertiary sources can also be collections of primary and secondary sources, such as databases, bibliographies and directories.
