Class and Group Visits

We are dedicated to collaborating with instructors from the university and community to incorporate rare materials into their courses. These classes are designed to provide context and increase engagement using primary and historical materials. 

Sessions typically occur in our instruction classroom as an active learning experience. Effective visits rely on small group analysis of a curated selection of items. We strongly encourage instructors to create worksheets, projects, or discussions centered on the materials, and will work with them to ensure an effective session.

We also facilitate tours and curated displays for any interested groups.

Requesting and Planning a Visit

Please send all instruction and tour requests to susan.guinn-chipman@colorado.edu

We attempt to accommodate all requests, but our schedule tends to fill up quickly. Please contact us as soon as possible (often months in advance) to ensure your desired time and visit. Sessions outside our typical open hours are often possible, if scheduling well in advance. After a time has been determined, please communicate all learning objectives and send relevant documents (syllabi, project assignments, etc.) to the Special Collections' instructors. Plan to work with our staff to craft a list of relevant material.

Note that it is our policy that the instructor of record must be present for class sessions.
