Primary Sources in Teaching: Collaborations Between Libraries and Faculty [ACRL/Choice]
Higher education courses in the arts, humanities and social sciences are increasingly encouraging students to work with original documents. Teachers and instructors are setting their students primary material – including manuscripts, audio-visual records, and data – to work on. The availability of such material in online collections is helping to boost this initiative.
In this session we look at how collaboration between libraries, teaching faculty and students can create an environment in which teaching with digital primary sources can inspire a new generation of thinkers, while encouraging valuable analytical and critical thinking skills.
