History Unbound Project

History Unbound will facilitate teachers’ ability to locate and review documents that conform to the Social Studies New York State Common Core standards and improve student preparation for the NYS Regents Examinations by pointing to the Library of Congress Primary Sets, New York Heritage collections and secondary literature including lesson plans and web-based and regional face-to-face workshops on inquiry based learning.

Primary Source Sets

  • Library of Congress Primary Source Sets
    Curated by LOC librarians, these sets built by topic and organized alphabetically contain image, document and audio files. All are downloadable and free for the educator to use.
  • New York Heritage Browse
    The New York Heritage browse page allows the researcher to view the collection by main topics, time period, or by sub-collection. Some sub-collections have topics that are easily determined and some are named for their benefactor. Items from this overall collection have been placed throughout the LibGuide according to their place in history. New York Heritage is a project of the NY 3Rs Association, Inc.
  • Digital Collections from New York State Archives
    A joint collection of the New York State Archives, New York State Museum & New York State Library, the collection can be browsed by topic or by sub-collection. It is also fully searchable. Depending on the item, the images will vary in ease of use and download quality.
