DePaul Featured in School Library Journal

School Library Journal has included the DePaul University Library in its discussion of Chicago Collections and engagement by member libraries, museums, and archives, with K-12 students and teachers in Chicago.

In addition to working with Chicago Collections colleagues on programs designed to promote student use of primary source materials for projects entered in the Chicago Metro History Fair, DePaul has provided professional development opportunities for librarians, archivists, curators, and museum educators who work with K-12 teachers, including a 2016 workshop of “teaching, learning, and critical thinking” with primary source materials. DePaul is a founding member of Chicago Collections, which fosters collaboration across the city designed to increase engagement with the history of Chicago and its people, and promotes faculty and student use of primary source materials in Chicago Quarter, and beyond.

The DePaul University Library also provides information literacy instruction to K-12 students through programmatic partnerships with schools, including DePaul College Prep High School, and promotes engagement with primary source materials through resources like the Dead Man Walking Teaching Kit.

For more information on the library’s instructional services program, please contact Heather Jagman, Coordinator of Reference, Instruction, and Academic Engagement.
