Archivists engage in user instruction aimed at learners of all ages. Yet we know little about each other’s instructional practices. The presenters focus on three aspects of instruction: the education of librarians/archivists in instructional pedagogy, the range of primary source literacy skills represented in instruction as evidenced by the book Using Primary Sources: Hands-On Instructional Exercises, and the measuring of instructional impact. The session ends with a discussion of the need for instructional guidelines.

Bahde: Articulating the Skills of Primary Source Literacy
Smedberg: Developing Primary Source Literacy Standards

Yakel: Understanding and Measuring Learning Impact
