The Archives Department welcomes the opportunity to work with instructors to collaborate in the design of instruction sessions, learning objects, and primary-source-based assignments. Beyond introducing students to archival research and our facilities, we aim to increase learners’ primary source literacy as outlined in the Guidelines for Primary Source Literacy developed by the Society of American Archivists and Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL). More broadly, we are dedicated to a learner-centered approach to teaching and work to foster students’ critical thought about information, its creation, and its historical legacy. We are open to working with classes from all disciplines and academic levels.
