National Humanities Center Toolbox Library
Primary Resources in US History
The National Humanities Center Toolbox Library is a multi-layered collection of primary sources divided into “toolboxes” with themes like American Beginnings, Becoming American, Making and Living the American Revolution, African American Identity, and The Gilded and Gritty. The toolboxes cover dates from 1492 to 1978, and have five themes each. Each toolbox has framing questions and related activities across each of its themes. Primary sources are suitable for student research.
