The Presidential Timeline is built upon a partnership among the National Archives' twelve Presidential Libraries and the Learning Technology Center at The University of Texas. The project brings together resources from these Libraries within a powerful, intuitive, and engaging web-based interface, thereby providing unified access to the growing store of digitized assets from the Libraries' collections. The central goal of this ongoing project is to support educators in facilitating historical thinking on the part of their students. The project makes primary source materials and related learning activities freely available to students, educators, and adult learners throughout the world. Currently the project contains nearly 1000 high quality resources, including documents, images, audio, and videos, which are available for download and, in almost every case, unrestricted use. The project is built on an expandable architecture with processes in place to support its continued growth.
