Jessy Randall, curator and archivist at Special Collections, continually helps students learn to search through resources in the library holdings. In addition to rare books, special editions, manuscripts, diaries, maps, and other physical holdings, many materials are available digitally. “Since the student newspapers have been digitized, these kinds of projects have exploded,” Randall says.
For a course taught this spring, students visited archives at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, and Special Collections and Archives at CC’s Charles L. Tutt Library, unearthing a wealth of little-known documents, photographs, and audio recordings. Read more about how historical research connects students to a sence of place.
