Bringing the Special Collections to the students - Bringing the students to the Special Collections.


The West Indiana and Special Collections Division is committed to integrating the Special Collections into teaching and learning in partnership with the teaching faculty.  Lecturers at St. Augustine are therefore invited to bring their undergraduate and graduate-level classes, in small groups, to the West Indiana and Special Collections Division for seminars, where the students can be exposed to primary documents. These seminars can be led by the lecturers themselves, a librarian or lecturer and librarian. We also encourage lecturers to include consultation of specific primary documents in coursework assignments to be undertaken by the students. We look forward to exploring with you creative ways of using the Special Collections in your courses.
