When archivists teach, we do so with an understanding of the role primary source literacy plays in the shaping of information literate students. Teaching across different disciplines, archivists introduce undergraduates to original research opportunities, digital scholarship, and unique processing projects in archives and special collections. Whether partnering with classroom faculty or teaching independent study courses, providing single or multiple semester projects, our roles in engaging undergraduates are continually expanding and taking new forms. This session presents three approaches to primary source instruction, highlighting the benefits and challenges of each to stakeholders. The panelists will share their experiences and encourage discussion from participating instruction practitioners.
