Why use Special Collections in your 
teaching and research? 
“Undergraduates need to become an active part of the 
audience for research. In a setting in which inquiry is 
prized, every course in an undergraduate curriculum 
should provide an opportunity for a student to succeed 
through discovery-based methods. … In the humanities, 
undergraduates should have the opportunity to work in 
primary materials, perhaps linked to their professors’ 
research projects.” 
The Boyer Commission on Educating Undergraduates in the Research University. 2008. 
Reinventing Undergraduate Education: A Blueprint for America’s Research Universities, 17.
Why use Special Collections in your 
teaching and research? 
Learning requires trust in the process of discovery.

  • 2. Why use Special Collections in your teaching and research? “Undergraduates need to become an active part of the audience for research. In a setting in which inquiry is prized, every course in an undergraduate curriculum should provide an opportunity for a student to succeed through discovery-based methods. … In the humanities, undergraduates should have the opportunity to work in primary materials, perhaps linked to their professors’ research projects.” The Boyer Commission on Educating Undergraduates in the Research University. 2008. Reinventing Undergraduate Education: A Blueprint for America’s Research Universities, 17.

Editor's Notes

  1. Don’t lock your special collections away in neglected corners of the library — use them to teach students about the possibilities and principles of research. Such collections should be put to use as laboratories where students work hands-on with primary documents, incorporate them into original research projects, and even publish the results in institutional repositories. Jennifer Howard, “Special Collections as Laboratories,” Chronicle of Higher Education 16 October 2009     At MU, the Department of Special Collections and Rare Books is a vibrant laboratory for the humanities, where students and faculty are welcome to research and explore. Our collections exist to be used, and they are open to everyone. As part of a class session in Special Collections, your students will have hands-on access to the most inspiring and intriguing materials the Libraries have to offer. They will learn research skills no database can teach them – the ability to track down sources, make connections among documents, and read evidence from both content and physical clues. Most importantly, they will discover an enthusiasm and engagement with their subject that their textbooks cannot generate.
  2. Holdings include 10 complete medieval manuscripts, hundreds of manuscript fragments, and 27 incunabula (pre-1501 printed books), including a complete Nuremberg Chronicle and a single leaf from the Gutenberg Bible. These form an excellent resource for teaching the history of the book, and students are encouraged to touch and handle these materials. The manuscripts have been partially digitized (see Resources).
  3. The Comic Art Collections are diverse, providing evidence of popular culture from the 1870s to the present. The collections include over 4,000 comic books, over 900 pieces of original artwork, the papers of four prominent American cartoonists, and thousands of clippings, pieces of memorabilia, and reference materials.
  4. Artists’ books challenge our preconceptions of the form and content of a book, often featuring innovative structures, illustration techniques, subject matter, and materials. SCARaB maintains an active collecting interest in artists’ books and fine press imprints. The collection includes hundreds of exemplars, as well as a large collection of fine press ephemera.
