Special Collections is committed to providing University of Tennessee faculty and instructors a variety of learning opportunities. Having students work directly with primary source materials motivates them to think critically, develop personal relationships to history, and engage with the complex perspectives of the past that primary sources present.
How to Request Instruction
We ask all faculty interested in instruction to please email the Special Collections Reference Desk at email@example.com by the first week of classes, Friday, August 20 to plan for and schedule your sessions. In your email please include:
- Whether you are interested in an in-person or virtual session
- Description of relevant course topic or assignment (please attach syllabus and assignment)
- If an ENG102 instructor, please specify what teaching collections you would be interested in having your students research (please see below for information on ENG102 instruction)
- At least two preferred dates and times for instruction
- Any additional information about learning objectives for the session
We will do our best to accommodate your choice of date and time, but please understand that we may not be able to guarantee your preferences. Course instructors are expected to attend the sessions with their classes. If you are an ENG102 instructor, please visit our 102 Instruction page for more information before sending your email.

Located on the first floor of Hodges Library, Special Collections is open Monday through Friday, from 9:00AM to 5:00PM.
If you have questions, please email the Special Collections Reference Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are always happy to help.
