Archives and Primary Sources

Hagadorn, Alexis L.; Jones, Thai S.

This module in the "From Books to Bytes" series helps prepare students to explore Columbia's vast collection of archival and rare primary sources. The video features Alexis Hagadorn (Head of Conservation) and Thai Jones, PhD (Herbert H. Lehman Curator for American History) as they discuss the textual and non-textual information that archival documents and rare books provide to researchers in the Columbia University Libraries’ distinctive and special collections. Handouts delve deeper into strategies for analyzing sources and provide guidance on best practices for handling library materials.
