Event description

Description

The National Archives at College Park and the Library of Congress on Capital Hill are the richest and most accessible motion picture and stills collections on earth and they are at your fingertips, not via computer, but by visiting each facility in person as a researcher.

This 2-day course will bring you to these facilities, show you what is there, and have you go through the steps to view and, in most cases, walk away with materials.

This special opportunity will take place over a Monday and Wednesday in October because they are the quieter days at these facilities. The classes will begin with an introduction along with advice and descriptions of the collections. Then you will visit the research rooms, learn about the rules, equipment, and hints for locating materials. You will meet the staffs -- the most important resource. Toward the end of each day you will have time to work on your own project with one-on-one guidance.

The first day, Monday, October 7, will take place at the Library of Congress and last from 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM with a group discussion over lunch and the afternoon for optional one-on-one assistance with your own research projects. You will be responsible for your own transportation to and from.

The second day, Wednesday, October 9, will take place at the National Archives in College Park and last from 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM with a group discussion over lunch and the afternoon for optional one-on-one assistance with your own research projects. You will be responsible for your own transportation to and from.

It is strongly recommended that you attend both sessions for the maximum benefit. However, you can still register for a single day session. If you register for both sessions together, you will receive a discount.
