Digital Resource: Newberry Collections for the Classroom

The American Express building in Chicago
The Newberry Library has organized hundreds of items among its large holdings into "Collections for the Classroom." Materials are divided by topic (for example, "Commodities and the Transformation of the American Landscape"; "The New Deal in Chicago and the Midwest"), but items may also be browsed alphabetically and can be sorted by date, author, or title. Users can log in to create their own lesson plans by assembling Newberry materials of their choosing; the results will be stored as a unique URL.
     For a full list of the Newberry's many online exhibits and topical digital publications, please see the Newberry website.
