Digital Teaching Collections

In June 2020, the Archives & Special Collections received a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) CARES grant to create a suite of digital teaching collections. We transformed some of our most highly requested archival instruction sessions into digital teaching collections that include primary source materials and lesson plans for undergraduate and K-12 students. There are eight digital teaching collections covering a wide variety of subjects.
