The Special Collections Library offers a range of services for instructors interested in teaching with and about the books, manuscripts, and other material in our collections. Special Collections Library staff can provide help with identifying appropriate material and developing class assignments. We are also prepared to assist with or conduct any of a variety of instruction sessions ranging from a general introduction to the resources that are available in the Special Collections Library to an in-depth presentation on specific materials and their historical contexts.
Our teaching space can be reserved by University of Michigan instructors and others wishing to bring a group of 25 or fewer individuals to the Special Collections Library to consult collection material. Please submit your request by completing the Instruction Session/Visit Request Form at least two weeks in advance of your planned visit.
We look forward to working with you!
