Primary source materials are often housed in an archive or a library's special collections. That's because these materials are often unique, and fragile. Sometimes they're irreplaceable. Archival materials are often housed at university libraries but also historical societies, museums, state libraries, public or regional libraries, and private collections.
In most cases, you will need to go to an archive to use the materials. It's always a good idea to call ahead and make an appointment.
