Use the overhead visualizer to show items from the Special Collections during your lectures

Leiden University Libraries provides an overhead visualizer for use during lectures. This device allows teachers to enrich their presentations with material from the Special Collections. Books, manuscripts, prints, drawings, and photographic material can be displayed live on screen in UBL lecture rooms and online classes.

Handling items from the Special Collections and operating the visualizer whilst communicating with an audience requires some preparation and practice. Therefore, all teachers that want to use the visualizer must follow this short instruction.

The instruction session takes about an hour. First, conservator Karin Scheper shows how material from the Special Collections (such as books, loose papers, maps, engravings, and photos) can be handled optimally and safely in conjunction with the visualizer. Staff from the Special Collections will then discuss how to operate the device and alternate the visualizer with a PowerPoint or an online lecture on the smartboard. Finally, the procedure for requesting the lecture rooms, the overhead visualizer, and materials from the Special Collections is explained.

Teachers of Leiden University can register free of charge by sending an e-mail to specialcollections@library.leidenuniv.nl.  

If you have a question about availability, please let us know. If there is enough interest, an extra course may be organized.
