The Women and Leadership Archives (WLA) is excited to welcome History Fair teachers and students! Visit the Make an Appointment page for current information on visiting the WLA.

WLA staff are happy to work with both students and teachers on topic ideas and use of primary sources from the archives. When visiting the WLA, students may feel free to talk with staff about what records pertain to a potential subject and how to access finding aids. WLA staff are well-versed in working with primary sources and eager to help.

Teachers may schedule a visit to the archives, utilizing the large reading room, or staff will bring the archives to the classroom. The WLA offers archival lab experiences for students to work with collections directly, customizing archives-related assignments for most academic disciplines. Class visits are an ideal opportunity to jump start class History Fair projects.

Teachers may feel free to contact the WLA to discuss potential topics and archival resources or arrange a class visit. Sometimes archival records are a bit "hidden" and specific pertinent collections are not readily visible through finding aids or other online resources. For hours, location, access, and other information, please visit the WLA Access & Hours page.
