Start the School Year with Library of Congress Teacher Resources

Posted by: Stephen Wesson

It may not feel much like fall in most of the U.S., but even in the absence of autumn leaves, school doors are opening and educators are preparing for--or beginning--a new year of teaching. In that spirit, we'd like to welcome you to another year of teaching using primary sources from the online collections of the Library of Congress! The Library offers millions of primary sources for free to all on its Web site,, and its education program supports teachers as they use these powerful items effectively in the classroom.
