As we look to encourage students to become scholars and produce original research, we need to begin with emboldening them to examine primary sources around pivotal moments in their community. To have students become familiar with past events we need to bring together primary source materials from archives to provide students with various opinions and accounts around a historical event. However, as a librarian or archivist, it can be hard to convince faculty to come to the library or archive so we sometimes have to take our materials to their classrooms. Due to the rarity of our materials, we need to find creative solutions to bring our materials to students and build lessons around primary documents that will be taken out of the archives when we approach our community outreach and student engagement. This requires us to approach lessons with creativity across our collections as well as incorporating innovative active learning activities to get students familiar with diverse primary documents. From a global studies class to one focused on LGBTQ literature, this poster will provide various examples of bringing the archives to the classroom as well as a toolkit to recreate this at your own institution.
