This case study explores collaboration between archivists and instructors of first- and second-year composition classes. The authors outline how a fruitful collaboration can begin before a class is designed to allow archivists to recommend particular collections and records that can help the instructor determine specific assignments and course themes. This collaboration continues within the course through embedded instruction and one-on-one student counseling. They argue that the model overcomes barriers traditionally faced in archival instruction and utilizes inquiry-based learning techniques. Such collaborations with equal participation by archivists and faculty members have a high potential for replication and benefit archivists and instructors while producing important student learning outcomes.
