In 2005, MSU’s Special Collections was approached by a professor in Art and Design about a collaborative project: Could Special Collections make secure study space available to her advanced art history students? For that fall semester, Special Collections housed African artifacts on loan to the university, treating the materials like the archival collections by ensuring secure storage and monitored access. The relationship continues today, with the Art and Design faculty member offering hands-on experience in several advanced art history classes. In addition, each fall an exhibit of the previous year’s best work is developed in the reading room. This arrangement, while outside the general mission of MSU’s Special Collections, offers an opportunity to support a colleague and her students. It also enables Special Collections to do outreach to students, educators, university supporters, and regional GLAM institutions not normally involved with the department’s work.
