Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Division of Special Collections' mission is to support teaching and research.

We assist a range of departments and schools here at the University of Alabama and are prepared to work with both undergraduate and graduate populations. 

We encourage integrating special collections materials into your assignments and/or using a visit to our repositories to teach critical image and textual analysis skills.

For this reason, we've developed guidelines for instructors to consider when planning their visit to special collections.  Please review these guidelines prior to contacting us so that you are prepared to discuss what type of approach would best suit your pedagogical needs. 

Once you are ready to schedule a class, email Amy Chen, the Division of Special Collection's coordinator of instruction at
