Archival Resources for Teaching Purposes
The new program, provisionally titled Archival Resources for Enhanced Teaching, seeks to acquire resources that can be used for seminar discussions, business cases, and interactive teaching scenarios. The inspiration for the new initiative came from work that Professors Gordon Boyce and Simon Ville (University of Woolongong) conducted during the course of writing a business history textbook, The Development of Modern Business (Palgrave, 2002). Now, at UN seven colleagues from diverse disciplines, including marketing, international business, accounting, human resource management and others, are collecting documents and artefacts that can be incorporated within courses while they go about the archival research they conduct for publishing activities. The aim of the program is to compile a large resource base of documents and identify web-based resources that teachers can use for instruction purposes. All of these resources will be placed within a virtual library at the CIOS web site. The group encourages scholars at other universities and at archives and libraries to join us in building and using the library. If you are interested in participating, please contact Professor Gordon Boyce.
