Presentation Description

Inspired by an article called “Engaging Students in the Game of Research”, a librarian and history faculty member got together to create and co-teach their own unit on researching with primary sources. The goals were simple: engage students in the research process and help students connect with the past in a meaningful way. This presentation will focus on their collaborative project and include information about its evolution. The presenters hope to inspire participants to begin a library-faculty collaboration project (or two) on their own campuses
