Abstract

This spring, Special & Area Studies Collections hosted its first cohort of Undergraduate Discovery Fellows, a research opportunity designed to give students the skills and freedom they need to use our collections for research or creative projects. Under the (virtual) mentorship of SASC curators and staff, three fellows dove into the collections, pursuing individual questions that they wanted to explore. The article features the projects that they worked on during their semester, as well as their reflections on their time in the library and their experience as a group.
