Library of Congress Resources About Ukraine

Over the last couple of weeks I've received quite a few requests for resources for teaching and learning about the Russia/ Ukraine conflict. In response to those requests I've been directing people to Larry Ferlazzo's frequently updated list of resources. Today, I found one resource that isn't on Larry's list, yet. That is the a list of resources compiled by the Library of Congress

In the LOC's list of resources about Ukraine you will find historical maps including this one that appears to be the first time Ukraine was used to describe the region. In the list you will also find links to resources from the Congressional Research Service and overviews of Library of Congress collections about Ukraine

By following tags and links through the digital archives of the Library of Congress you can find additional resources about Ukraine. That's how I found the map that I used as the feature image for this blog post. I viewed this map then scrolled down to find the tag Ukraine then on the next page clicked the map tag to find a list of 33 related maps. Take a look at my GIF below for those steps.
