Today marks the 100th anniversary of the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, which sparked what came to be known as the First World War. To mark the war’s anniversary, we’re participating in Home Before the Leaves Fall, a collaborative digital history project featuring library and archival materials related to the war. Check out the site for highlights from our collections, which we’re also sharing all this week on Tumblr!
