Primary Source Research and the Undergraduate: A Transforming Landscape
Malkmus, Doris J.
Journal of Archival Organization, v6 n1-2 p47-70 2008
Archivists have created millions of digital primary source images that have contributed to the transformation in history teaching. This generation of students arrive on the college campus familiar with primary source documents but as yet unprepared to search finding aids or understand archival collections. This review of archival, educational, and historical literature presents core information about new teaching methods, the scholarship of teaching and learning, digitization efforts, and the efforts by archivists to more fully understand new users. This information offers a starting point for an ongoing partnership between archivists and faculty in teaching effectively with primary sources. (Contains 39 notes.)
