This series invites you to take a deep dive into the Library’s image collections with specialists from the Prints and Photographs Division. These expert guides lead an interactive session that includes intriguing images that prompt some fascinating questions – plus, they share research tips and answer your questions.

Thursday, April 29, 4PM ET – How Should We Index This Image?

Join Cataloging Specialist Arden Alexander and Processing Technician Libby McKiernan on an exploration of the Library of Congress Thesaurus for Graphic Materials (TGM), to learn approaches to describing images, using topical terms, plus ways you can use the TGM for your personal or work collections. The specialists will also invite participants to index some images from the Library’s collections with them.
