HIST 325 Fieldwork in Archival Operations

Provides students an opportunity to participate in the operation of an archive, research library, or special collection as a service to the community. Students will provide important services to historical collections by engaging in collection inventories, preservation work, bibliographic analyses, and editorial processing. Students will engage in research related to the collection(s) they are processing and prepare public history products as a result of their efforts. Students will reflect on their experiences and describe how those experiences affect the trajectory of their path toward a career. This course is repeatable for credit.
