Class Request Tool is a web application that 1) allows instructors to request assistance, space and time for teaching with primary sources at Harvard's archives and special collections repositories; and 2) assists library staff in establishing more effective and centralized management of seminar requests for classes. Class Request Tool describes policies and procedures for hosted classes, collects information necessary for booking, and reserves requested time and space. It notifies staff of class requests and help staff with their management, including via linking class requests with materials in the Aeon special collections management system.
