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.
