Your Class Visit

When provided with the opportunity to work directly with primary source materials, students discover an excitement and engagement not generated by textbooks. In addition, working with primary source materials teaches students to learn to verify sources, tracking down connections, and finding evidence from content and from physical clues.

In addition to a classroom visit, professors may assign their students projects requiring research in Archives & Special Collections. We invite you to consider this option be it as a mandatory part of your course or for extra credit. Not only do students benefit from handling and studying the materials more closely, independent projects also help them to advance their library and research skills.

Classroom Visits

Prior to the scheduled visit, faculty are encouraged to meet with a Hoffman Family Library Special Collections Librarian to discuss the format of the class session, the texts and artifacts that will be exhibited, and the layout of the classroom. To schedule a classroom visit please email or call (860) 913-2042.
