Part of the mission of Special Collections & University Archives (SCUA) is to serve as an instructional resource for
University Faculty. Special Collections & University Archives staff are happy to work with instructors to integrate
SCUA material into their curricula and encourages class visits. Instructional
sessions can be tailored to both undergraduate and graduate levels.

Theory, Methods of Bibliography and Research, Linguistics and Literature, Oral History,
Modern Art of Mexico, Creole Identity, Caribbean Cultures, Travel and Tourism, Product Development in Theme
Parks & Attractions, Type & Design and Artist Books. Instructional sessions can focus on
a specific collection or topic, or cover broad research methodology such as primary source
and archives research.
