Hackney Library

FYS: Archival Exercise

A LibGuide containing images of pictures and documents for use in FYS Classes

Archival Items (Scanned images of the original items)

Choose from one of the following artifacts/documents from the College Archives for your group's Barton Story assignment.  Click on the links to see each image (or look at paper copies of the artifact images on reserve).  

For the last question on the first page of your archival assignment, you will be using Hackney Library's OneSearch to research more broadly about an idea, a theme, or an issue that strikes you arising from your investigation of your group's document or artifact.  You will use this research to help answer the questions on page two of your archival assignment.

If your group can't come up with ideas for OneSearch search terms for broader info on your document/artifact, look for some suggested search terms below each item.
