ACRL Cookbook: Teaching with Primary Sources

Chapter 23: Community Potluck Chili


Kristin Conlin, Reference & Instruction Librarian & Fatemeh Rezaei, Archivist at The University of Baltimore



A hearty and fulfilling meal can be created using ingredients from libraries, archives, and civic data organizations. Using the University of Baltimore’s Special Collections & Archives materials, researchers in an online class environment explore community-led neighborhood redevelopment through the Model Urban Neighborhood Development (MUND) digital collection of images, videos, and community group documentation. Researchers will connect plans and initiatives from the mid-20th century to present-day neighborhood health indicators using civic data made available through Baltimore Neighborhood Indicator Alliance (BNIA).
