Special Collections and Archives collaborates with faculty in providing instruction for a variety of disciplines and course levels. In the 2014-2015 school year, we hosted 67 instruction sessions with nearly 1,000 students, including courses from Anthropology, Catholic Studies, College of Computing and Digital Media, English, History, Latin American and Latino Studies, Liberal Studies, Modern Languages, Music, New Media Studies and Women’s and Gender Studies.
Morgen MacIntosh Hodgetts, liaison librarian to the Department of Catholic Studies, was interviewed on her experience in selecting archival resources and working with students in Professor Emanuele Colombo’s course on Roman Catholic Theological Thinking (CTH 243) in the spring of 2015. Morgen notes that she was “pretty surprised” with the students’ reaction, in that “they were silent…silent in a good way…they were absolutely engrossed” with the materials selected from the DeAndreis-Rosati Memorial Archives.
Information about our collections and our instruction request form are found on our web site. We are always happy to discuss ideas, assist in selecting resources, and suggest class formats, discussions, and assignments that have worked well in the past.
