The Library of Congress (LOC) has organized its digitized American Memory collection in a way designed to fit the needs of students and educators. The new site is called the LOC Learning Page. Resources to help educators incorporate the Library's primary sources into their curriculum are provided on the "Educator's Page," as well as answers to technical questions about the online materials. The electronic collections are arranged alphabetically by keyword, as well as by media type. The "Pathfinder Pages" arrange the collection by types of events, people, places, and topics. The entire site is searchable, and under "Search Suggestion List" a synonym list for key word searching has been provided. While the American Memory collection has been available for some time, the Learning Page is a significant enhancement for K-12 educators and students, and everyone else.
