Primary Sources in Canadian Universities: From Business History to Creative Writing

Tuesday, December 7 | 14:00 EST (19:00 GMT)

Instructors in Canada have incorporated online primary sources into higher education teaching through innovative assignments across a number of subject areas, from a consumer culture course at the University of Manitoba to a creative writing class at the University of Alberta. In addition to showcasing these pedagogical case studies, we will also speak to Emma McTavish, a PhD candidate from Queen’s University, who will talk about her experience using the digitised Munby Papers in Gender: Identity and Social Change database in her research. Finally, Jessica Kowalski from the Quartex team will show how Canadian libraries have used the Quartex digital asset management platform to host their own special collections online.

Register today to find out more about primary source pedagogy, postgraduate research and library asset management in Canada with Emma McTavish from Queen’s University and Alex Burnsides, Laura Blomvall, Aerin Bowers and Jessica Kowalski from Adam Matthew Digital.
