The Russell Library’s instructional team promotes student success by collaborating with and supporting course instructors to develop archives-centered encounters ranging from single sessions to semester-long projects. The Russell team also creates online subject and course guides that facilitate primary-source-based research. To request a library instruction session, please complete a request form or contact Jill Severn at jsevern@uga.edu or 706-542-5766. Please allow at least 10 days advance notice to avoid scheduling conflicts. 

Russell Library Archives-Centered Instructional Collaborations:  

  • Develop class sessions using Russell Library collections 

  • Design course-specific, active-learning sessions to strengthen critical thinking skills using carefully curated selections of materials that can help deepen students’ understanding of subjects, time periods, and document formats.  

  • Guide students in searching and discovering materials within the Russell Library’s holdings by using online databases and search strategies.  

  • Provide archives-centered instruction to University of Georgia faculty through the Special Collections Libraries Faculty Fellows Program.
