Request a Class Visit to Special Collections

Before requesting a session, please keep a few things in mind:

  • Allow two weeks' notice before your first preferred date. We need time to adequately prepare for your students.
  • Supply three possible dates. We'll do our best to schedule the session for your first preference, but this isn't always possible.
  • Plan to allow one full class time (anywhere from 50 minutes to 1 hour 50 minutes) for a Special Collections Instruction Session. This allows your students to fully engage with new concepts.
  • After requesting a session, please send your syllabus and research assignment, if applicable, to jonesr@msu.edu.
