Teaching With Collections

Primary sources prove critical to learning across disciplines.

Classes from across a range of disciplines regularly visit Special Collections during the school year to view objects, tour exhibitions, and pursue innovative research assignments. 

Several faculty members from Bryn Mawr and Bi-Co programs share their perspectives on the value of incorporating primary source materials from Special Collections into their courses and assignments.
