Faculty: Using the Western History Collections in Your Classes

The Western History Collections encourages faculty members to integrate special collections materials into their class plans. We welcome classes to learn about using special collections in their research. 

Supporting faculty teaching goals is part of our primary mission. We offer the following opportunities:

  • Teaching students how to find books, manuscripts, and photographs in our collections
  • Presentations on specific class-related topics
  • Using specific collection items that relate to class topics

Contact us regarding instructional needs. Be aware that assignments requiring collections use will need to accommodate limited hours, and students should be encouraged to make an appointment to visit well before their due date. Talk to us about digital alternatives.
