The Boston Teachers Union Collection at UMass Boston is currently made up of three distinct collections: the Boston Union Teacher, the BTU Oral History Project, and the BTU Digitizing Day. All of these collections are freely available and full-text searchable through UMass Boston’s Open Archives Digital Collections portal.

In addition to being discoverable through web searches, Open Archives collections are directly searchable through Digital Commonwealth: Massachusetts Collections Online and the Digital Public Library of America.

To accompany the collection, UMass Boston graduate students Evan McDonagh and Kayla Allen worked with UMass Boston Reference Librarian Jessica Holden to create a LibGuide: a research guide with inks to related materials in UMass Boston’s Libraries and beyond.
