Using digital resources for teaching primary source analysis can enrich pedagogy whether you are a subject specialist or a librarian by suggesting new ideas for lessons and/or supplementing those you created previously to expand their reach. Digitized holdings from national-level institutions give students the opportunity to compare and contrast local holdings with major repositories. Guides created by archivists and librarians enrich undergraduate or graduate student learning by providing different professional skill sets and vocabularies. Blogs provide the opportunity to share public scholarship while social media expands the audience for collections and scholarship even further.
