Research consultations and classes
We offer appointments for in-depth consultations to support the needs of researchers. Students, faculty, staff, scholars and community researchers are invited to contact an archivist or library specialist for personalized guidance on assignments, research or creative projects.
We teach a diverse range of classes and offer presentations that help faculty incorporate the use of archival, manuscript and special collections in research assignments and course work. Classes range from basic “how-to” sessions on using primary and secondary sources, to subject classes tailored to meet specific course objectives. Most classes offer students an exciting hands-on opportunity to examine rare and unique materials.
Faculty are asked to schedule basic instruction sessions at least one week in advance. If you are designing an assignment or course that makes extensive use of our collections, please contact Andrea Kohashi at firstname.lastname@example.org or (804)827-3573 as soon as possible during the planning stage.
