At Penn State Fayette, the Coal and Coke Heritage Center archivist and Reference and Instruction librarian partnered to provide embedded library instruction for an ethnography project. The two sessions included an overview of ethnography, the difference between primary and secondary sources, an overview of finding archival material using finding aids, and an extensive overview of library secondary resources, including appropriate databases. The result of this effort was an opportunity to advocate for archives among students and colleagues.
