Docs Teach, a new website from the National Archives, offers teachers access to more than 3,000 digitized documents from NARA's collections, along with classroom activities using them. It's the latest in a series of efforts under the recently appointed Archivist of the United States David Ferriero to enhance the agency's presence on the web. (via)

Neat, thanks. I love the National Archives ... I've unearthed some pretty amazing audio from their glass transcription disc collection over the years.

Neato! My first find: James Doohan narrates "Space Shuttle: Mission to the Future" (1981) ... thanks for this!

I'm only getting a blank screen when I visit the Docs Teach site. Is anyone else having problems with it?
