History Project Roland Marchand developed documentary source problems for his students at the University of California Davis. The History Project gathers these lessons here and continues to build on Marchand's model. Outstanding teachers, graduate students, and staff from The History Project each have contributed lessons that add to the growing collection. Each assignment encourages students apply their analytical skills to a set of primary sources from which they can deduce and explain events from the past.

Digitised WWI Victorian newspapers A major project commemorating World War I has digitised 216 WWI-era Victorian community newspapers and made them available online via the National Library of Australia’s Trove portal. Victorians everywhere can now explore the stories of their communities and family and friends who lived and fought through the Great War. This digitised collection contains thousands of stories waiting to be found. These newspapers of the day provide, in their original format, news and public debate; letters from soldiers, sailors and nurses; death notices, images and more. The newspapers can be freely and easily searched by anyone at anytime and anywhere, using keywords, dates or geographical regions. Our listings below link directly to digitised newspaper titles across nine Victorian regions.

Australian pictures in Trove Picture Australia has been absorbed into Trove. It was originally launched in September 2000, and at that time, was a unique and ground breaking service, bringing together digitised images from cultural heritage collections around Australia for not only all Australians to see but also the world. Contemporary images were sourced from Flickr via a series of Groups, which ensured individual contributions to Picture Australia were included in the snapshot of Australiana. We will continue with this tradition using the Trove: Australia in Pictures Group.
