  • All available resources, including, but not limited to, Primary Sources and Online Books, are now linked directly to the article they relate to. This makes research easier- everything is now hosted in one succinct place.
  • Teaching with Documents has also been given a facelift and now resembles our article pages to provide continuity and an easier-to-read format.
  • All primary sources are now coming from multiple sources! As always, our editors have carefully curated these documents to fit the needs of all users.
  • And don’t worry, anything that users have previously saved in their My Research or Pathfinder accounts will still be accessible and usable.
