Program Teachers



The Library is about making connections! We work with organizations across the country to connect educators with our collections and expertise. In addition to our partners from the Teaching with Primary Sources partnership program, we collaborate with organizations on publications and interactive projects, as well as contributing to the national conversation on education.


We publish articles and essays in a number of educational journals and magazines.
