Digital Primary and Secondary Resources

Happy Friday!

The other day I was asked about places to find good Primary sources for our students.  Below I am going to list some of my  favorites

Google Arts and Culture -  Here students can view High quality art work, photography, and music.  Students can zoom in on famous pieces of art from around the world. Also, a new feature is that they have 360 Degree videos. This was a little mind blowing for me.  Students can sign in with their Google Account and save pictures, art, and videos.  Check out the video below. You can use the arrows in the left hand corner to rotate the video!

The National Archives  -  National Archives has diaries, pictures, music, etc. . . A feature that is new to me is DocsTeach.  This is a tool for educators to discover and create lesson plans and search for specific documents.

Finally, the Digital Public Library of America  is a collaboration with  Public Libraries  and cultural institutions all across America.  Here you can find photographs, books, maps, news footage, oral histories, personal letters, museum objects, artwork,  and government documents.  Below is a video describing the DPLA.  

All of these resources are FREE!

If you have any questions about any of these please let me know!

Take care,


  1. Excellent resources! To this list I would like to add Galileo which includes the Digital Library of Georgia.
