Description

Strategies for Research in Special Collections and Archives

This workshop is for anyone planning to use unique materials in library special collections and archives either at UNLV or at another library, archive, or museum. Participants will learn to locate where collections are held, use collection descriptions and finding aids to discover relevant material, and share tips on collecting and organizing the historical gems they uncover.

Attendees will be able to search for archives or collections outside of UNLV that are relevant to their research, navigate finding aids, and share tips for planning research trips and organizing photos and notes.

Facilitators: Su Kim Chung, Head of Special Collections & Archives, and Priscilla Finley, Humanities Librarian

The event is part of the University Libraries' Faculty and Graduate Student Workshop Series.
