Turning the Pages at the British Library

Turning Pages into Classroom Gold: Ancient Texts Shine on the Web - In Turning the Pages, the British Library puts some of the world's oldest, most beautiful, and culturally significant books online. Read about it in an article by Douglas Cruickshank in the latest issue of Edutopia at: http://www.edutopia.org/british-library-ancient-texts-online

If you haven't seen this before, you are in for a treat. This looks like a great resource for finding access to magnificent texts and primary sources.

In the words of the author, "The past has a brilliant future."

What an AMAZING resource from the British Library. I dragged my family there several years ago and we stayed for hours looking at the displays of all these original books and recordings. Thanks for alerting us to this online version -- it is now included in SLL2.0 and Classroom Learning 2.0.

Best wishes.
