Timelines are useful tools for teaching and learning about people, places, and events in the past. The Minnesota Digital Library has started creating interactive online timelines that place historical images, documents, maps, and more at specific moments in time. Explore these timelines to engage with our digital collections in a new way.
Are you looking for new ways to teach students how to develop critical thinking and historical analysis skills? Help them “Think Like a Historian” with Primary Source Sets from the Minnesota Digital Library. These sets bring together primary and secondary sources in new ways to help students better understand historic events in their context.
The Minnesota Digital Library recently added interactive map exhibits to place our materials in their actual locations within Minnesota. Each map features photographs and documents that help tell stories about these significant places.
