Enrich teaching and learning with Special Collections

About this event

The University of Manchester Library’s Special Collections span five millennia across topics from Gilgamesh to Ginsberg; they form an astonishingly rich resource of rare books, pamphlets, manuscripts, maps, archives, oral history, art works and objects.

There are unique opportunities to enhance undergraduate and graduate level teaching and learning using our diverse range of physical and digital resources, and our Special Collections staff are on hand to provide bespoke advice on embedding Special Collections content.

This event is an opportunity to connect with curators and Library specialists to explore current innovative teaching practice and discuss how Special Collections can enrich teaching and learning. There will be introductions to the University’s digital collections, widening participation and equality, diversity and inclusion. It will also feature speakers and case studies from tutors across the University, who will be sharing their experiences of using the collections for teaching and learning.
