Bob Kosovsky, New York Public Library
Raymond Pun, New York University
This panel brings together various professionals who have worked with humanities and social sciences classes in creating workshops and programs for students, secondary educators, and faculty. The speakers will discuss their outreaching methods as well as their case studies in introducing archival and library research to their graduate, undergraduate and high and middle school classes.
The purpose of this panel is to demonstrate the importance of academic collaboration with these professionals in creating class projects that utilize both archives and libraries; the presentation concludes that these types of collaboration can strengthen students' interests and critical thinking and research skills in conducting scholarly research in the humanities and social sciences that benefit both the historians and teachers and the librarians, archivists and curators.
