PrimaryAccess is a web-based tool that offers teachers and students frictionless access to digital images and materials that enable them to construct compelling personal narratives.

The connected world of the internet offers unprecedented opportunities for students and teachers to access an impressive archive of primary source historical documents from the convenience of their web-browser.

It is widely agreed among educators that students who effectively use primary source documents will develop better historical thinking skills than they would using another author's interpretation.

The primaryAccess Initiative offers students and teachers the opportunity to use primary source documents to create digital movies (historical narratives) that provide a compelling and meaningful learning experience.
