Special and Area Studies Collections collections and curators support over 100 course visits per year. Materials are tailored to the specific class. In March 2020 a problem arose when the university closed and classes moved online because of Covid-19. A project team was formed with Special Collections and IT to create a framework for digital presentations and classes. They began a program to reach faculty at and outside campus by creating 10-15 minute presentations using video and still images of the collections.
