After almost two years of planning, preparation, and design and development work with our web partner, The Berndt Group, our new web site went live yesterday morning. On this new site you have found your way to, which you’ll still find at www.theodorerooseveltcenter.org, you will find articles about Theodore Roosevelt, his family and his era, a news section including monthly updates on our digital library progress, our new and improved blog, as well as more information about the Center, its work and how you can help. We also have specialized portals for scholars, students, and educators to help these audiences find the resources that will help them best as they study and share Theodore Roosevelt and his history.
Most importantly, the new web site marks the official opening of the Theodore Roosevelt Digital Library. This library is the product of a collaboration with the Library of Congress, Harvard College Library, and the National Park Service to bring together all of Theodore Roosevelt’s papers in one place. The library opened with over 5,000 items from ten different collections. We will be adding new documents weekly and hopefully many new collections over the coming year.

Note: Please be aware the website is currently in a two-week “soft opening” stage. You may come across problems or unexpected errors. We are aware of these issues and are working on solving them one by one. Please be patient with us as we make this transition.
