Portal to Texas History Awarded

Portal to Texas History receives NEH honor
Posted by: Mellina Stucky

The National Endowment for the Humanities has selected UNT's Portal to Texas History as one of the best online resources for education in the humanities and is linking to the portal from its EDSITEment web site, which is designed to help teachers, students and parents find high-quality material in the humanities online. The portal is one of about 60 sites chosen for inclusion from more than 200 sites nominated last year.

"The portal staff is thrilled about receiving this honor," says Dreanna Belden, the libraries' coordinator for grants and development who works primarily with digital projects. "This recognition speaks directly to the high quality of lesson plans being created by the portal team."
