We recently highlighted our updated Digital Library, inviting you to explore the origins and diversity of Pennsylvania and the United States from the colonial period and the nation's founding to the experience of contemporary life. This update is designed to help you and your students access primary sources within the classroom, on your smartphones, and from your home. There’s another great resource we would like to call your attention to – The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA).
