The Public Domain Review provides an immense resource of books, images, audio, and video content, all of which can be used in any way you can imagine. Explore their Collections

In this section of the site we bring you curated collections of images, books, audio and film, shining a light on curiosities and wonders from a wide range of online archives. With a leaning toward the surprising, the strange, and the beautiful, we hope to provide an ever-growing cabinet of curiosities for the digital age, a kind of hyperlinked Wunderkammer – an archive of materials which truly celebrates the breadth and variety of our shared cultural commons and the minds that have made it. Some of our most popular posts include visions of the future from late 19th century France, a dictionary of Victorian slang and a film showing the very talented “hand-farting” farmer of Michigan. With each post including links back to the original source we encourage you to explore these wonderful online sources for yourself. Check out our Sources page to see where we find the content.

The Collections are organized by Medium, Time Period, Tags, and Source- see if you can find something in your teaching area (tags might work the best), for example, following the tag for Geography we find The Strange Adventure of a Pebble, providing an amusing narrative approach to geography.
