Treasures within Our Walls: Using the University's
Special Collections for Teaching and Research
Blythe Roveland-Brenton, University Libraries
Wednesday, April 17
12:15 to 1:40 p.m.
Library 307, Queens Campus
There is a growing trend in colleges and universities to promote
active engagement with unique and uncommon library and archival
collections – especially to encourage undergraduate use of primary
sources. The session will introduce some of the rich, and perhaps
unexpected, material held in the University Archives and Special
Collections. The presentation will include a discussion of the
kinds of collaborative projects that have been, and could be,
developed to utilize these collections in support of student and
faculty research and to enhance teaching and learning.
