Located on the Fifth Floor of the Kreitzberg Library, the Archives Instruction Room allows classes to explore historical primary source materials collected by the Norwich University Archives. Collections from Archives and Special Collections can be used to support such diverse subjects as engineering, English, sports medicine, history, languages, physics, and math. Please note that this space is not available after 4 p.m.
Start by breaking into groups to examine historical documents, photographs, or rare books and answer critical questions about their significance. Then have the groups use the document camera to share the item with the class and discuss their conclusions.
Or, use the touchscreen annotation function to lead a transcription or translation exercise using a digital document.
