Office/Remote Location

Coordinated by Heidi Johnson, Social Sciences Liaison Librarian, Tammi Kim, Special Collections Technical Services Librarian, and Rosan Mitola, Outreach Librarian, this workshop will introduce students to primary source research and provide an opportunity for them to creatively engage with archival materials related to social activism in Las Vegas and southern Nevada from the University Libraries Special Collections and Archives.

Working with reproductions of historical materials, workshop participants will have the opportunity to create buttons, zines, collages, and other creative projects. This workshop is for students who wish to learn more about Special Collections and Archives and how to use materials in non-traditional ways beyond papers and presentations.

Refreshments will be provided.
