To take advantage of the thousands of photographs in our collections, classes can use the Photograph Analysis Form to take a closer look and learn how to use images as a source of information.
In addition to rare books, manuscripts, and photographs many of our collections are rich in material culture containing political buttons, t-shirts, posters, household objects, and even a Gay Monopoly board game. To work with these items, we have created a Material Culture Analysis Form.
In Digital Commons, you can find images of collection items, finding aids to direct research in our manuscript collections, videos of past programs, and more.
To learn more about using primary sources, see this guide.
