The primary goal of our seminar is to provide a skill-building workshop for students of history. We aim to guide students through source use and analysis activities that will lead students toward effective and meaningful primary source investigation. Our archives tutorial program provides students the unique perspective of working with authentic, unedited eighteenth- and nineteenth-century manuscripts from our own Lloyd W. Smith Archival Collection.
SEMINAR BLOG: The Primary Source Seminar Blog is the latest installment of our program. Our blog is an interactive space for us to connect with teachers in the community. We use this site to connect teachers with resources and to post information about upcoming events. Teachers are able to leave comments on our page that other readers and curatorial staff my address.
