Primary Sources Online

Primary Sources are discussed time and time again when with the Common Core standards or conducting library instruction sessions with students of all ages. It’s important to know where to find digital copies of primary source materials.  In this webinar, we’ll explore websites that contain primary source materials and supporting materials and lesson plans for interpreting and analyzing the primary sources.  Explore primary source materials in new and familiar online repositories.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Search freely available repositories for primary source material
  • Access supporting materials for some of these sources, including ready-made lesson plans
  • Discuss ways librarians can bring primary sources to life
