Description

Integrating medieval manuscripts into an undergraduate curriculum changes the game. Students are transformed from passive learners to active scholars; observing objects and seeking to understand and interpret their context teaches critical thinking. Implementing programs to give students this opportunity requires the cooperation of special collection librarians and faculty, two disciplines that speak slightly different languages. Inspired by Les Enluminures's new program "Manuscripts in the Curriculum" (http://www.textmanuscripts.com/curatorial-services/manuscripts), this roundtable will also introduce a third perspective and explore the practical issues of how to build collections for teaching. The session organizers wish to bring people together from these communities to share their experiences, to discuss successful results, to analyze problems, and to envision future directions.
