...thank you for the creative and engaging approach you took to your Honors Interpretation of Literature section. This is very much what we hope to see brought to an honors course and greatly appreciate you integrating applied learning and digital humanities in a first year course for our students. You should be justifiably proud along with your students.
— Robert Kirby, Associate Director, University of Iowa Honors Program Director, Iowa Center for Research by Undergraduates

Taking advantage of and sharing local resources while practicing research on the material aspects and cultural work of texts, U Iowa Interpretation of Literature students shared their finds from the University Library's Special Collections through social media.
