Libraries, Museum of Anthropology Welcome History Students for Research Exploration

From sewing a miniature book binding to watching a demonstration of shaping a stone tool, nearly 200 eighth-graders from Lincoln Middle School recently took a whirlwind tour of library sciences and anthropological research at Washington State University to prepare for their final history project this spring.

WSU manuscripts librarian Cheryl Gunselman shows Lincoln Middle School visitors one of the many rare and unique books at the WSU Libraries.

The teens visited the WSU Libraries and the WSU Museum of Anthropology to glean ideas for their “Night of the Notables” on March 26 and 27. Students investigate an important historical figure, write a paper and answer questions as that figure, in costume, during an evening event for parents and friends.
