Finding Archival Collections
Note: Archival/manuscript collections in this context refers to original, digital, or surrogate copies of the records or personal papers of organizations, governments, and individuals.
In this session, you will learn about different avenues for finding archival/manuscript collections, both in the United States and elsewhere in the world. You will also practice developing a good research strategy for finding archival materials relevant to a specific topic or question.
This workshop is specifically geared towards students and researchers planning summer research travel in the US or worldwide.
Prior to the workshop, please download the Archival Flowchart from the Library Research Guide for Finding Manuscripts and Archival Collections.
This is an Unabridged “Bookends” workshop. Bookends workshops are designed for graduate students, with topics that complement Unabridged’s January intensive. More program details on our website.
