Student Research Employing University of Washington Special Collections

This exhibit, co-sponsored by the Research Commons and the Labor Archives of Washington, focuses on recent University of Washington graduate student research projects employing primary source materials from the UW Libraries Special Collections. Primary sources are materials directly related to a topic by time or participation.

The exhibit highlights three graduate students' innovative research, hinting at the broad topical range of the type of scholarly disciplines that employ the unique treasures housed in Libraries Special Collections (located below the Research Commons in the Allen Library South Basement). As a central hub of presenting and supporting student research, the Research Commons is proud to showcase these examples of student research.
