Here you will find guidance for welcoming students into your archive or special collection library and using collection materials to enhance their understanding of history. A visit to the Building Knowledge and Breaking Barriers Archive will show you the kinds of learning materials you can create to help scaffold students’ approaches to primary source documents. 

Listen to Presbyterian Historical Society archival staff talk about their collaboration with Community College of Philadelphia professors and how they prepared to bring 300 students into the archive to conduct primary source research.
