Archives and Rare Books Teaching Support

At the University of Cincinnati Archives and Rare Books Library, we work with faculty to develop and provide active learning sessions utilizing both archival and rare books collections.  We provide sessions for undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, staff and community members.

To schedule an instruction session, please complete and submit the ARB Primary Sources Instruction Form. We will try to respond within 10 business days but encourage instructors to reach out prior to the start of the semester to fully discuss collaborative instruction. The minimum amount of time to prepare a class session is four weeks and any requests received under that timeline may not be accommodated. Classroom space and staff availability are on a first come, first served basis.

If you have any questions, please contact the Archives and Rare Books Library at
