Exposing first-year students to Special Collections can demystify using the publications in research and possibly lead students to contribute their own works to such collections. In the Fall 2018 term, students in the DePaul University course Alternative Cultures: Artists’ Books and Zines held, handled, looked at, read, and experienced artist’s books and zines at various libraries, bookstores, print shops, and studio spaces and talked with artists, writers, and librarians throughout the city before creating their own publications. At the end of the term, these creations were donated to the Special Collections at DePaul’s Richardson Library. In this session, you will learn how to plan and prepare to teach similar courses, how to scaffold lessons for these types of courses, and how to create meaningful assignments.
