Share this post:

Dance Archivist Libby Smigel and I are excited to present a Saturday Research Orientation for dance on October 20! Whether you’re a seasoned dance researcher, a first-time Library visitor, local dance educator, or student currently studying dance, we can’t wait to meet you and share our resources with you. Please register for this free event online through this link.

Topics Libby and I will discuss will include digital collections, dance special collections in divisions throughout the Library of Congress, general collections materials, and how to best utilize our on-site electronic resources. The session will also feature a walkthrough of the Library’s soon-to-be-published Research Guide for Dance – the first “LibGuide” format at the Library of Congress just for dance. Come curious – all questions and levels of dance research experience welcome. We look forward to meeting you!

Saturday, October 20, 2018  |  10-11:30am  |  Library of Congress Jefferson Building Room 139B
