Join CRD’s Connect & Communicate Series for a Panel Discussion on
Using Archives and Special Collections in Instruction
Friday, April 29, 2016, 11:00AM-12:00PM Eastern

Whether your institution is currently using its archives and special collections in instruction or not, you’ll want to join us for this panel session! Panelists
Christy Fic (Archives & Special Collections Librarian, Shippensburg University), Julia McGinnis (Associate Professor & Resources Acquisition, Metadata, and Special Collections Librarian, California University of Pennsylvania), and Isabella O’Neill (Head of Special Collections/University Archives, Bucknell University) discuss various topics, including how collaborations with faculty have led to the integration of archival and special collections-based instruction, the development of special collections, and the improvement of resources and funding, as well as how to go beyond “show and tell” and create a real learning experience for students. A Q&A session follows the panel discussion.
