Primary Source Literacy through Digital Exhibition Design

Would you like to see more primary source material in student research projects? Are you interested in helping students build digital projects but aren't sure how to start? In this brown bag, we will discuss how building digital exhibitions of archival and special collections material creates mutually beneficial partnerships for students, teachers, librarians, and technologists. We'll consider case studies from the IU community that have promoted primary source literacy through innovative alternatives to the analog research paper. This presentation is focused on the pedagogical and methodological aspects of digital exhibitions, but we'll also have plenty of tips for where to go for technical help, copyright questions, archival expertise, and assignment design.

Presented by Rebecca Bauman (Lilly Library), Mary Borgo (Department of English) and Meg Meiman (Teaching & Learning) as part of the Digital Libraries Brown Bag Series.
