Instruction Sessions

Special Collections & Archives, Wake Forest University, encourages the use of its collections in undergraduate classes. We are eager to share our unique archival, manuscript, and rare book collections with students and faculty, through presentations and class visits. We offer general orientation sessions for classes using primary sources, course-related presentations on specialized topics, and are always available to assist with specific collection requests.
