Primary sources bring history alive and can be a fantastic teaching tool to empower students to develop vital critical thinking skills and manage their own research.

But how do students find primary sources either through online collections or in the archive? How do they evaluate them once they’ve located them? And how do they apply them in their own research as historians?

In this webinar we’ll be hearing from speakers on how digital primary sources have been integrated into undergraduate education, consider the future direction of digital primary source collections, and discuss the evolving and vital role of the librarian in supporting primary source literacy.
