Every semester, the Special Collections and Archives hosts classes in the Reading Room in which students interact with primary sources and historical artifacts. Classes can visit the Reading Room during regular open hours or schedule a visit for another time.
Prior to a scheduled visit, faculty are asked to meet with SC&A staff to discuss the format of the class session, the materials to be exhibited, and any additional preparatory information.
To schedule a class session, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (740)427-5996.
In addition to class visits, faculty may assign their students projects requiring research in the Special Collections and Archives. We encourage you to pursue this option, be it as a mandatory part of your course or for extra credit. Not only do students benefit from handling and studying primary sources more closely, independent projects help them develop their research and library skills.
