Web Site of the Week: Learning Resources: University of Wisconsin Digital Collections

Among the major research universities in the Midwest, the University of Wisconsin has some of the best digital collections. The collections span Badger State history, textiles, human ecology, and American military history. This particular site brings together a trove of learning resources designed to be used in conjunction with the digital materials. The Subject Guides list links to particular collections related to themes that include agriculture, veterinary sciences, women, and Native Americans. The Lesson Plans area includes a dozen plans on subjects including “Irish Famine: An Exploration of Primary Sources,” “Wisconsin’s Connection to the Galapagos Islands,” and “An African American Settlement in Wisconsin,” as well as more general-use lessons such as “You Be the Historian – Analyzing Primary Sources.” [KMG]
