Welcome

Teach with us! With Special Collections, students can discover and engage with primary sources and learn about material culture. Working remotely, we offer asynchronous and synchronous instruction over Zoom, as well as limited custom scanning and video of objects. We can incorporate material and staff from across Harvard's Special Collections in a single session, or work with you on longer- term class projects. 

By helping to select materials and design activities, our staff can engage students and classes through active learning to meet your learning goals. With these experiences, students come away knowing they are welcome in Special Collections and inspired in their research.  

NOTE: general library instruction sessions are scheduled separately through Ask a Librarian.
