Random Thoughts: Change, Primary Sources & Other Stuff

Where can I find primary sources for my World History class?

Posted on: April 15, 2013


I’m student teaching this semester. I’m looking for primary sources about world history. I don’t know where to start.

Teachers and media specialists looking for digital primary resources representing world history and cultures will be excited to learn about the World Digital Library, a collection of significant, multilingual resources. Primary sources from over 150  cultural institutions from throughout the world are accessible in one easy to search portal.

Curriculum ideas and more about finding these resources are in the New Media Center column published in the March/April issue of Internet @ Schools.  The column is available via Ebsco or this Power of Primary Sources page.

WDL is growing.  Recently added are several issues of Layla, the first women’s magazine published Iraq.

Background information about WDL, January 2013 post.
