Description: One of the greatest challenges when starting research in a new area is learning and understanding the resources that are available. Maps, gazetteers, archival finding aids, Yizkor books, and local histories are just a few of the resources useful for building a research toolbox. Learn how to conduct a literature review and find more critical resources for your research. This presentation will walk through the steps of building oneʼs own resource guide (whether geographically or topically based) - a valuable tool that may serve as a foundation for oneʼs research for many years to come.
