K-12 educators need freely available primary source materials aligned to Common Core and National Content Standards. The University of Florida Digital Collections (UFDC) has over 8 million pages of content across disciplines. The Teacher Resources Collection (TRC) aims to increase visibility and use of collections hosted by the UFDC through building a usable digital collection of teacher resources. Reaching the goal involved:
1) Creating exemplar educational materials that use UFDC copyright free content,
2) Providing training modules and opportunities for finding and using digital library content in the K-12 classroom,
3) Developing a customized database, and
4) Establishing policies and contribution tools to maintain and grow the collection.
