Digital Public Library of America

Here's another great online resource for beginning your research!

The DPLA (Digital Public Library of America) is a U.S.- based nonprofit organization and a free web discovery platform. It offers online access to more than 40 million cultural heritage objects—images, text, videos, and audio clips—gathered from libraries, archives, and museums across the United States. This can be a great place to look for primary sources (original historical materials) and reference or background information on a variety of topics.
