In this roundtable, five contributors address how hands-on work with archives has been incorporated into undergraduate education. They each answer a series of five questions to report on what they have done, what has worked or not, and the value of bringing archives into the classroom–or the classroom into the archive. We invite you to read through the responses by author or by question.
