This is a great resource to direct undergraduate students to for their initial research. It is especially useful if they are having difficulties choosing a topic or finding quality primary sources. It also helps them get accustomed to using the LOC.

This site is very useful for students, teachers, or librarians looking for primary source materials. It would be an excellent resource for classes doing historical research or looking to include historical images into a presentation.
