Services and support

Our knowledgeable and helpful staff can support your research efforts in a variety of ways.

 

Research help

Our librarians and staff can help answer questions about our collections and provide additional guidance on how and where to search for materials. We encourage researchers to reach out to us at any time during their research process.

Instruction support

Incorporating primary source material into your course improves critical thinking, creates a stronger connection to the past and improves information literacy skills.

Our staff would love to talk to you about the possibility of incorporating Special Collections and Archives in your classroom instruction. Whether you have an idea of the content you'd like to use, or you aren't sure what materials might support your teaching goals, we can help. Contact us to begin a conversation about instructional support we can offer.

Digitization and preservation resources

While the Morse Department of Special Collections focuses our resources on preserving the materials in our collections, there are many practices we use that can be replicated at home for personal preservation purposes.
