You are invited to attend a workshop sponsored by the Collections 
Collaborative on Friday, November 9th, 1:00 to 4:30 at the McDougal 
Center, Room 119A.  The goals of this workshop are 1) for 
librarians/archivists/curators to learn from each other re. methods 
of interacting with faculty and graduate students to integrate 
primary sources into courses and 2) to provide an opportunity for 
Yale faculty members and graduate students to share information about 
how they have integrated primary sources into their courses - what 
has worked well and what hasn't? what would facilitate the process?

The schedule for the afternoon will be as follows:

1:00-2:00 p.m. Pre-session for librarians/archivists/curators
Presentations by George Miles (BRBL), Diane Kaplan (MSSA), Pamela 
Franks (YUAG), Lisa Ford and Julia Marciari-Alexander (YCBA) on
