How do I arrange for a class in Houghton Library and order material for it?
We are happy to work with you to create learning experiences for your students, ranging from visits to Houghton Library for hands-on learning with our collections to out-of-class assignments that students can work on in our Reading Room. Use our Class Request Tool to get the process started—you’ll be asked to share some basic details about your class like the course title and prospective dates, and a Houghton staff member will get back to you shortly.
The Houghton website discusses some particulars of class visits, including how much lead time we need to prepare for your class, as well as some ideas of the kinds of work your students can do with us.
If you want to talk more about what we can offer before you make your request, or you have additional questions, submit a question and a librarian will get back to you as soon as possible.
