Capstone Seminar PrOjects
Taking the Archives Public: Online exhibits for teachers, students and researchers
As final independent projects, the students of ARX 340, the capstone seminar of the Archives Concentration, created six online exhibits of archival materials from the Sophia Smith Collection and College Archives.
We've made these curated collections available for teachers and future researchers. Each exhibit provides a well-researched framework of the topic, high-esolution images of each document, annotated bibliography for future research, and, for several, suggestions for lesson plans.
We hope these will find their way into classrooms and future research projects.

Each exhibit also invites comments from visitors.
In addition, six more glass case exhibits will be up in the Sophia Smith Collection reading room through September 2011.
