Yesterday, students from the Archives and Special Collections Studies class (LIBR 320) were in the Learning Commons presenting their project posters and answering questions about their research. This class gave students the opportunity to choose their own topic of personal interest that they then researched using materials from Heritage Resources Special Collections and the Center for Pacific Northwest Studies.
Topics included an exploration of "The Little Mermaid," Mountain Goats in Olympic National Park, Japanese-American Internment during WWII, and the merging of four separate communitites into what we now know as "Bellingham."
In case you missed it, these posters will remain on display in the area between the Daylight Lounge and the Tutoring Center through the morning of Monday, June 9, 2014. If you get a chance, you should stop by and check out the results of these students' fascinating work.
