Classes in Special Collections

Special Collections works with faculty to hold classes that develop the primary source literacy skills of their students.

Classes are online or, with very limited class sizes, face to face. We can work with students in Microsoft Teams, Zoom, or Blackboard. We provide:

  • digital resources
  • active learning exercises
  • discussions about collections and research

These will prepare students to use primary sources, either remotely or individually in our reading room.
