We will be meeting in the archives for class on June 2. After a brief orientation by a staff member you will choose a manuscript collection to explore. I’ll ask that you request materials from a collection and investigate its contents to see what types of sources are available and think about potential topic ideas.
You can prepare for the visit by coming with an idea about which manuscript collection might interest you. Point your browser to http://uca.edu/archives/manuscript-collections/ and browse the collections. Then, tomorrow you’ll be able to get started right away.
I have created a list of questions to guide your time tomorrow and ask that you answer the questions and post your answers to the appropriate thread on the discussion board on Blackboard. You may want to bring a laptop to complete the assignment while you are in the archives.
