Description

Feeling overwhelmed or out of the loop when it comes to the latest resources for researching Minnesota history? Wondering exactly what is online, what isn’t, and how to effectively sort through it all (and help your patrons do the same)?

The reference librarians at the Minnesota Historical Society are here to help. In this webinar learn about:
The content and scope of Minnesota history online research collections (from newspapers to government documents)
How to use various online search tools for finding information in Minnesota history related collections
Reasons why librarians/patrons may be interested in particular resources
Tools & services available for remote research assistance

At the end of this session you will have a solid sense of the type of research you can do online, how to tell when you need to visit the library in person, and how best to use online resources to prepare for such a visit.
