Description/Abstract

Since 1949, Syracuse University has assembled historical documents, including manuscript, print, visual, and media materials, related to adult education. Today, Syracuse University Library-The Alexander N. Charters Library of Resources for Educators of Adults serves as an international treasury for the Adult and Continuing Education Collections, housed in the Department of Special Collections. The collection is one of the world's largest compilations of English-language materials in this field, truly an international treasure. This paper is a reflection on my research experience in the spring of 2012. I have included general and historical information on the collection, useful web links including grant information and internship opportunities. This paper encompasses my research experience at the Alexander N. Charters Library of Resources for Educators of Adults, disclosing the purpose of my research trip, my findings, a few lessons I learned, recommendations and of course my overall reflections on the Alexander N. Charters Library of Resources for Educators of Adults.
