  • Speaker: Rose Buchanan, Archivist, Archives 1, Reference Branch, National Archives, Washington, D.C.
  • Learning outcomes: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) houses historical records of the United States Government. These holdings include historical documents, photographs, audio recordings, and other materials created by Federal agencies, Federal courts, and the U.S. Congress from the eighteenth century to the present. Given the volume of material, locating and accessing particular records can seem daunting. However, NARA has multiple tools available to help researchers identify and access records online. This webinar will provide an overview of these tools and discuss strategies for searching for particular records at NARA.
  • Webinar Series: Gov Docs 101 is a series of introductory subject webinars on frequently-requested Government information topics. The webinars are designed for newer depository coordinators, however anyone with an interest in the subject may attend.
