Archives, Undergraduates, and Inquiry-Based Learning: Case Studies from Yale University Library

Rockenbach, Barbara A.

This article discusses the integration of primary sources into the teaching of undergraduate courses through the application of specific learning theories. Creative assignments and inquiry-based learning exercises illustrate how librarians and archivists can collaborate with faculty to integrate collections into the curriculum. Through several case studies from Yale University, the article examines how learning theory can provide inspiration for partnerships with faculty and new outreach approaches.
