Topic: Become an Expert: Create  Resource Guide.

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 needed to build 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 one’s own resource guide - a valuable tool that may serve as a foundation for one’s research for many years to come.
