Course Instruction Request

The Archives Department welcomes the opportunity to work with instructors to provide a general introduction to research using primary sources and an orientation to our collections and services. As relevant, these instruction sessions also teach basic search strategies and introduce students to our registration procedures, the proper handling of materials, duplication policies, and similar matters. Sessions can be tailored to include specific topics or primary sources as needed. Most sessions last an hour, including time for questions.
