Abstract
  • This report investigates primary source use among humanities and social sciences faculty at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The study is part of a multi-institutional research project initiated by Ithaka S+R, “Teaching with Primary Sources.” For this study, our team conducted interviews with fourteen humanities and social sciences faculty members in various departments to record their needs and experiences when teaching with primary sources. These interviews were conducted with the intent to identify how libraries and other stakeholders can support primary source work on our campus, as well as in university campuses across the country. This report covers topics including course design, collaborations with on-campus representatives and community members, student outcomes, and the challenges involved in incorporating primary source work into the university classroom. In addition, this report offers recommendations for facilitating successful primary source instruction on university campuses.
