Digital History We are very sorry, but you have reached a page that has moved or no longer exists. Please visit our home page to experience our new look and updated navigation. On August 8, 2012, Digital History switched to a new interface. We have been restructuring the database and the organization of Digital History for the past three years, and we feel this makeover will significantly improve the usability of our materials.

New Deal Network DocsTeach Help your students think through primary source documents for contextual understanding and to glean information to make informed judgments. The first few times you ask students to work with primary sources, and whenever you have not worked with primary sources recently, be sure to model careful document analysis. Direct students’ attention to the procedures involved and the kinds of questions you ask about the documents. After several instances of modeling, ask students to work as a class to analyze documents, vocalizing the process as they go. Remind students to practice this same careful document analysis for every primary source they see. Learn more about introducing your students to primary source documents. For any type of document — a written document, image, map, chart, graph, audio or video — move through the following steps: Before getting into the content of the document, look at it in a very general sense and ask basic questions.

Copyright-Free Photo Archive Public Domain Photos and Images The photo archive at Gimp-Savvy.com has more than 27,000 free photos and images saved on our own dedicated server, consisting of over 2.5 Gbytes of data. The goal is to make this archive a resource for collage and photo-montage using digital image editing techniques such as those described in Chapter 7 of Grokking the GIMP. To improve the archive's usefulness, full indexing of the images is planned. However, this job would be taxing for a single person, and would probably produce only mediocre results. Consequently, the solution is to provide an interactive environment allowing the community to participate in the labelling of archived photos. The expectation is that the resulting index will be both richer and more robust than one fashioned by any so-called master architect. In looking through the archive you will be able to browse pages of photo thumbnails, which are linked to the full-size images. The photos you'll find here are copyright free, but some restrictions still apply.
