Digital Teaching Collections

In June 2020, the Archives & Special Collections received a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) CARES grant to create a suite of digital teaching collections. We are transforming some of our most highly requested archival instruction sessions into digital teaching collections that will include primary source materials and lesson plans for undergraduate and K-12 students. This is a list of some of the collections we’re working on:

  • Abby Williams Hill: Artist and Advocate
  • Artists' Books: primary sources to foster creativity and imagination
  • Accordion Books: interplay between form and content
  • Bringing Women's Studies to Puget Sound
  • Japanese American Incarceration during World War II
  • Systemic Racism in Greek Life at Puget Sound in the 1960s
  • A History of Blackface and Minstrel Shows at Puget Sound
  • Tourism and Conservation in the National Parks
  • Women in Science at Puget Sound

Creation of the digital teaching collections is currently in progress. We expect work to be complete in summer 2021. If you have questions, please contact us at
