On October 13, the State Historical Society of Missouri (SHSMO) will offer Using Digital and Material Collections in Your Classroom at the Cape Girardeau Research Center in Pacific Hall on the Southeast Missouri State University campus.

Educators will delve into unique archival collections, both physical and digitized, and archivists will share strategies for teachers and students to have great research experiences.

On November 3, SHSMO is teaming up with Missouri State University’s Special Collections and Archives to offer a second session of Using Digital and Material Collections in Your Classroom. This workshop will be held at Meyer Library on MSU’s Springfield campus.
