One Book, One Profession: Teaching with Primary Sources

What if archivists were all reading the same book at the same time? Join your colleagues in reading, talking about, and building on ideas from Teaching with Primary Sources, one of the latest books in the SAA series Trends in Archives Practice. Teaching with Primary Sources is edited by Christopher J. Prom and Lisa Janicke Hinchliffe and consists of three modules: “Module 9: Contextualizing Archival Literacy” by Elizabeth Yakel and Doris Malkmus; “Module 10: Teaching with Archives—A Guide for Archivists, Librarians, and Educators” by Sammie L. Morris, Tamar Chute, and Ellen Swain; and “Module 11: Connecting Students and Primary Sources—Cases and Examples” by Tamar Chute, Ellen Swain, and Sammie L. Morris. As libraries and archives increasingly provide services in addition to collecting and curating collections, the importance of instructional services also grows. With creativity, variety, and pragmatism, the authors guide readers in understanding what instructors want their students to learn and how to support students in that learning. By sharing their successes—and their struggles—the authors address gaps in the archival literature and the information literacy literature and strengthened these intersecting domains of practice.  You’ll also learn about how you can organize a One Book, One Profession discussion group at your institution or within your local or regional archival association.
