Digital Teaching Collections

In June 2020, the Archives & Special Collections received a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) CARES grant to create a suite of digital teaching collections. We transformed some of our most highly requested archival instruction sessions into digital teaching collections that include primary source materials and lesson plans for undergraduate and K-12 students. There are eight digital teaching collections covering a wide variety of subjects. 

Abby Williams Hill: Artist and Advocate

Accordion Books: Interplay Between Form and Content

Artists’ Books: Primary Sources to Foster Creativity and Imagination

Bringing Women's Studies to Puget Sound

A History of Blackface and Minstrel Shows at Puget Sound

Japanese American Incarceration During World War II

Systemic Racism in Greek Life at Puget Sound in the 1960s

Tourism and Conservation in the National Parks
