Guide focus

Welcome to our Civil War LibGuide.  We hope that the resources and content shared here will support learning and teaching about the Civil War, especially its impact on Pennsylvania history, as we commemorate the sesquicentennial of the War.

Our Civil War LibGuides is an example of digital collection curation and how librarians contribute to the learning culture in our state.  Beyond merely gathering content,  librarians create context, foster understanding, and often create original material (see the "Living History" tab) to help learners make meaning of the many available information feeds. We hope this LibGuide demonstrates the way technology enables librarians to collaborate beyond geography to curate content and create resources to inspire learning in Pennsylvania schools.
