About the Project

Supported by grants from the NJ Historical Commission, the Electronic New Jersey Project provides primary source learning materials and related instructional activities within 23 curriculum units to increase student and faculty understanding of New Jersey's role in U. S. history. Beginning in 1997, faculty at Hunterdon Central Regional HS in Flemington NJ and Spotswood NJ HS collaborated with archivists and librarians at the Alexander Library to select, study and develop resources for this project. Howard Green, research director of the NJ Historical Commission, assisted in the selection and review of sources for the project, lending his substantial expertise in NJ history throughout the development of the site. Since that time, a consortium of New Jersey school districts have collaborated with Rutgers University-New Brunswick, the NJ State Archives, and the NJ Historical Society to further develop and expand the project website.

We welcome your inquiries and questions about site contents, design and instructional activities. Please contact us with your comments.
