Tours & Orientations

Bring your class to the archives for a first-hand look at documents, photos, films, and materials specifically tailored to the class you are teaching. Students can experience history from those who created it. For more specialized class sessions, staff will work closely with faculty and instructors to identify materials pertinent to their topics and assignments. Orientation sessions introduce students to our procedures and give an overview of our resources, including registration, proper handling of materials, research techniques, intellectual property principles, and feasible timelines. Basic search strategies and tools, as well as useful tips, to help students find materials and make the most of our resources may also be included. Previous tours have included students from engineering, urban sociology, English, aerospace medicine, and history, to name just a few!
