Understanding how primary sources are accessed and used in the sciences is new territory. Drawing on their work supporting classes and research projects in biology, ecology, and health sciences, university and museum archivists describe case studies, lessons learned, and best practices. Cases are drawn from contexts ranging from K-12 education to graduate teaching and research. In audience discussion, participants brainstorm access and use models for new frontiers in the sciences.
