Abstract: Poster presented at the 2011 Society of North Carolina Archivists Conference, Greensboro, North Carolina. In September 2011, Professor Hephzibah Roskelly of the Department of English contacted the UNCG University Archives about a collaborative project designed to bring ten English 101 and 104 courses (taught by five PhD candidates) into the Archives to perform primary source research. This poster details this multi-class research project that, over the 2011-2012 academic year, introduced over 200 freshmen to University Archives and archival research.
