Govenor's School Archival Studies



As a research support unit at East Tennessee State University, the Archives of Appalachia works with faculty and instructors to integrate primary source materials into the Governor’s School coursework and field experiences. The Archives also provides research support to the students for their projects and assignments. Led by Laura Smith, Education & Outreach Archivist, students will learn research techniques that will help them locate, manage, analyze, and communicate information. Students will receive hands-on research experience with archival materials that date back to the late eighteenth century and will engage in critical thinking analyses of a variety of documents, rare books, photographs, and audiovisual materials.
