American Memory

The American Memory project from the Library of Congress provides at least 261 discrete digital collections in 18 broad topical areas: Advertising; African American History; Architecture, Landscape; Cities, Towns; Culture, Folklife; Environment, Conservation; Government, Law; Immigration, American Expansion; Literature; Maps; Native American History; Performing Arts, Music; Presidents; Religion; Sports, Recreation; Technology, Industry; War, Military; and Women's History. The content is primarily based on the collections of the Library of Congress, but also draws from the University of Michigan's Making of America project. This free resource is an extraordinarily rich documentary source for American history and culture.
