Aimed at professional librarians and archivists, this book explores connecting students and faculty with the archival and digital collections of the universityâs library and archives. Academic research has been forever changed by the digitization of books, journals, and archival collections. As university libraries and archives move forward in the digital era, it is essential to assess the research needs of users and develop innovative methods to demonstrate the value of collections and services. This book provides librarians and archivists with the tools to develop a robust workshop program aimed at connecting students with archival and digital collections.
