The amount of information on the Web has in recent years exploded. With this expanding universe of information, how do teachers make effective use of available educational resources? This question drives our research. In this exploratory study, we are working with pre-service teachers to develop robust strategies for locating primary historical materials. We are collecting and analyzing data on pre-service teachers' interactions with the American Memory website from the U. S. Library of Congress on subject specific pedagogical assignments. We present emergent strategies for locating subject specific historical material on the Web (specifically on American Memory) as well as existing strategies that we are using with our pre-service social studies education students involving the contextualization, delimitation, and manipulation of digital resources. Our findings may enable teachers and teacher educators to more effectively find and utilize primary historical resources on the Web.
