Special Collections Initiates Learning Lab for Undergraduates

Special Collections is pleased to announce the SC Learning Lab. The SC Learning Lab is a center of primary research, experiential learning, and training.  Targeting undergraduate students in the humanities, social sciences, and arts, the SC Learning Lab provides training in archival methods by pairing advanced undergraduate students with unprocessed or under-processed archival collections in their research area. 

The internship promotes undergraduate research, scholarship, and creativity and more fully integrates Special Collections into the teaching and research mission of the University.  Undergraduate students will be taught how to arrange and describe rare or unique collections in their area of research interest, while enhancing access through the production of guides, exhibits, or transcriptions. In addition to their training, the interns will create and present a poster, presentation, or exhibit, reflecting on the impact the internship had on their research.
