Teaching Online with Primary Sources

Learn about teaching online using special collections and archival materials


This guide is primarily intended as a resource for UH faculty who wish to introduce their students to online primary sources and to develop their students' primary source literacy skills in an online environment. Librarians and archivists from Special Collections can meet you wherever you teach - Teams, Zoom, or Blackboard - and provide resources, exercises, demos, and discussions to prepare your students to use special collections and archives online, or in our reading room. We're here to help.
