Daily Life through History (DLtH) is a truly unique, landmark learning resource. This database explores ordinary life through time and across the globe, bringing the past to life through details that turn flat descriptions of historical characters into human beings that today's students can relate to.
DLtH supports courses in American history and literature and is an outstanding, cross-disciplinary resource for researching historical topics such as American food and cooking, celebrations, clothes, romance, work, religion, housing, language, and social customs. The Idea Exchange section offers informative, scholarly essays focused upon a variety of subjects that are often the basis for community college and undergraduate writing assignments.
The release of Daily Life through History enables easier printing and email capabilities to make research and writing projects more convenient, while current MLA, Chicago, and APA citations make the bibliographic process straightforward. The revised arrangement of information provides easy access to overview sections that provide the big picture while integrated reference entries examine specific topics in detail.
