Teaching the Untouchable: Rare Books Education in Elementary School Classrooms


“Hands-on with Vellum”

Rare books and elementary school classrooms…can the two mix? The answer is yes, absolutely. For seven years, Dana Sheridan, Education & Outreach Coordinator, has had tremendous success bringing collections education to New Jersey schools. To date, over 14,000 children have participated in Cotsen in the Classroom, a hands-on, staff-facilitated, collections education program that features items from the Cotsen Children’s Library.  For more about the program, including “five tips for your rare books program,” see the November 2014 issue of College and Research Library News: “Teaching the Untouchable.”
