Education and Outreach 

A central part of the AHC's mission is to make make our holdings accessible to all. Our diverse collections support casual inquiry and international scholarship alike. And most importantly, we play an active role in the teaching and research missions of the university.

Instructional Support

There are many ways we make our holdings accessible. Our archivists, as members of the University of Wyoming faculty, are available to teach bibliographic instruction and historical methods courses to students from UW, as well as elementary, junior, and high school students from around the state. For more information, see our Instructional Support page.
