We encourage faculty to draw upon the Herskovits Library collections to enrich their teaching and promote student learning. We provide expertise, customize instruction to specific needs and course goals, and aim to make students comfortable navigating the library's vast resources, including archival and special collections. Our customized instruction includes activities that facilitate classroom discussion, student-led inquiry, and critical thinking.
We also promote teaching and learning about Africa across disciplines and grade levels within the greater Chicago area.
If you would like to schedule an instruction session with your class/group or learn more about Teaching with the Herskovits Collection, email Florence Mugambi or complete the Northwestern University Libraries Instruction Request form.
