Instruction & Internships

Archives and Special Collections staff encourages faculty and students to incorporate the use of our collections into class instruction and research projects. Collections available for use include Loyola institutional records, manuscript collections, photograph collections, and the rare book collection.

Class Instruction

Is your class learning about using primary sources for research? If so, the staff at the Archives & Special Collections department can help by providing instruction sessions in the following areas:

  • Introduction to archives/using primary resources
  • Overview of the collections at Loyola
  • Loyola history

Each session is tailored to the specific needs of the individual class. Please contact the University Archivist/Curator of Rare Books at kyoung3@luc.edu to set up an instruction session.

Internships and Practicums

Interested in learning about the work done at an archives and special collections department? Loyola's Archives and Special Collections invites students from Loyola and other institutions to explore the possibility of interning at our repository. Internships usually consist of a processing project along with involvement in other activities at the archives including research for reference requests and exhibit preparation (physical and digital). Internships are tailored to the specific interest and requirements of the student. Contact the University Archivist/Curator of Rare Books at kyoung3@luc.edu for information.
