Breaks in the academic calendar are important in Special Collections because they allow time for in-depth research. It’s common for faculty and graduate students to take advantage of their time outside the classroom to develop theses, dissertations, peer reviewed articles, and books that require archival sources. Here in Special Collections, we look forward to summer and winter sessions as times when dedicated scholars will be diligently working away in the archives! Researchers often travel from other colleges and universities during January and August, scheduling trips at multiple archives along the way. Special Collections takes pride in facilitating the research of scholars from our global academic community. Do you have research that would benefit from archival sources? If so, now’s a great time to explore our collections and schedule time in our research room!
