On Thursday, September 15, 2022, from 1:00-1:35 p.m. EDT, join Library of Congress Digital Conversion Specialist Mike Saelee and Reference Librarian Amber Paranick to learn how to search for primary source materials in Chronicling America.* The free digital collection of almost 20 million pages from American newspapers published between 1777 and 1963 is highly valuable for National History Day research. The presentation will cater to this year’s theme, “Frontiers in History: People, Places, Ideas,” and will discuss the collection, its search interface, how to navigate the challenges of working with historic newspapers, and additional resources to assist students and educators.
This program will be streamed live and recorded. For those unable to attend this program at the time, the recording will be posted on the Library of Congress Event Videos collection page and on the Library’s YouTube channel in the coming months.
Individuals requiring ADA accommodations should submit a request at least five business days in advance by contacting (202) 707-6362 or [email protected].
Please register for the event.
