The IUB Libraries is pleased to announce the first-ever Primary Source Immersion Program for Bloomington instructors. The three-day workshop, to be held in August 2017, will introduce faculty and instructors to new possibilities for integrating primary sources and special collections into their courses with the goal of engaging students with the materials in meaningful ways. This program represents a collaboration among the Libraries’ Department of Teaching & Learning and partner repositories across the campus.
