Abstract

The Library of Congress, the world's largest library and repository for the United States' national treasures, created a pilot project called the American Memory project. Through American Memory, over seven million primary source documents such as letters, images, photos, and songs have been digitized and added to the growing number of American Memory collections. In 2003, the Metropolitan State College of Denver began a four-year project called An Adventure of the American Mind - Colorado, (AAM-Colorado) designed to train teachers on how to access and use the American Memory primary resource collection in their classrooms. In addition, the AAM-Colorado project has created prototype lesson plans that demonstrate the use of primary sources and the use of rich media such as DVD video, audio, and animation in the K-12 classroom.
