Summary of proceedings

Collections Collaborative Workshop on the Use of Primary Sources in Teaching at Yale

The goals of this workshop are to:

  • provide an opportunity for Yale faculty members and graduate students to share information about how they have integrated primary sources into their courses - what has worked well and what hasn't? what would facilitate the process?
  • provide an overview of Collections Collaborative activities currently underway that are creating new tools and modes of access to Yale's primary source collections.

  • provide education and information for librarians/archivists/curators about how their colleagues at Yale have interacted with faculty and graduate students to integrate primary sources into courses.
