The Research Services Instruction Team is excited to welcome and introduce the Tulane community to Tulane University Special Collections (TUSC) and primary source research. TUSC staff is available to collaborate with instructors on creating a variety of learning experiences supported by TUSC collections.
TUSC looks forward to collaborating with faculty and students to create engaging and meaningful synchronous and asynchronous sessions, activities, and assignments that make use of TUSC digitized collections in order to meet a wide variety of learning goals.
The TUSC teaching practice is guided by these objectives:
All sessions are tailored to the goals/objective of the individual course and aligned with the SAA/RBMS Guidelines for Primary Source Literacy. The Research Services Team encourages hands on, active learning activities.
One on one virtual or in person meetings to discuss course planning, assignments, or collections suitable for class use. Contact Agnieszka Czeblakow, Head of Research Services firstname.lastname@example.org.
Basic departmental tours and exhibit "gallery talks" to groups of 10 or more with TUSC archivists, librarians, or curators.
Instruction spaces designed for work with special collections materials are an integral component of a successful primary source session.
TUSC staff are happy to accommodate students and faculty with special needs. Please contact TUSC at least 5 business days in advance of the class or tour.
