Search the "Primary Resources for Teachers" database

Search by Title, Subject, Curriculum Category, and Appropriate Grade (k-12) in this database of primary source material, a collaborative effort of OHS' Archives/Library and Educational Services Divisions. Currently, all the material consists of pamphlets, but in the future it will include documents from the State Archives, and sample lesson plans.

Subjects:
Subjects represented at present are Alcohol, Catalogs, Civil War, Criminals, Kids/Education, Labor, Medical, Native American, Ohio History, Personal History, Political, Religion, Songbooks, Souvenirs, Transportaion, Underground Railroad/Slavery, and Women. Curriculum Categories represented at present are Government and History.

Originals:
The pamphlets, the majority of which date from the 19th century, come from the Pamphlet Collection of the Archives/Library, and the originals may be viewed in the Research Room. However, most are fragile and in poor condition-- often the digitized images are clearer/cleaner.

Viewing/Printing:
The pamphlets may be viewed and printed in low (72dpi .gif) and high (400dpi .tif) resolution file formats. Low resolution images are the default, as all graphical Web browsers are able to display .gif images. Found below the displayed page image is a link to download the higher quality .tif image-- current Web browser software cannot view .tif images without a plugin or helper application. The Library of Congress/American Memory website has directions for viewing .tif images.

What IS Primary Source material anyway?
See Using Primary Sources in the Classroom for our working definition, and see Primary Sources: Definitions from Yale University Library's Primary Sources Research Colloquium for additional definitions.
