Archivists from University Archives & Historical Collections (UAHC) visit K–12 classrooms for no charge provided that they are within a reasonable driving distance from East Lansing. Our archivists can bring primary resources to show students and talk to them about a variety of topics.
Some topics include:
- Using primary sources
- Careers in archives
- Preserving family history
- Michigan State University history
If you are interested in having an archivist speak to your class, please contact UAHC at (517) 355-2330 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
