The TPS Collective seeks to maintain a chronological, user-generated bibliography for resources about Teaching with Primary Sources.

If you would like to submit a resource to the bibliography, please visit the Submit a Bibliography Entry page.

The TPS Bibliography is maintained as a Zotero library, which you can access directly here.
(The entries below are auto-pulled into this page using the Zotpress WordPress plugin.)

In 2021, an Article Discussion Club was launched, led by the SAA-TPS Committee and open to all. Visit the info page to learn more about upcoming and past topics, articles, and discussions. And keep informed about all kinds of TPS-related opportunities, resources, and events by joining the TPS Collective listserv>>
