Teaching to the assignment

Just a dashed off note on a day with too much in it: It is a real pleasure to teach a tool to a group of students working on a very specific research assignment that gets eleventymillion times easier if you know how to use the tool. This group needed primary media sources related to a range of historical events. I showed them our History Resource Center and Historical Newspapers.  They turned around and used History Resource Center and Historical Newspapers to get the primary sources they needed for their assignment. Ta-da! We all left happy!
