Please join us for this next presentation in a series of ad-hoc seminars to explore freely-accessible on-line digital collections with archivists internationally. With massive numbers of free-access collections globally going digital, how do we remain disciplined and targeted when searching, yet also let the information lead us to new findings? As with old-fashioned approaches, the archivists can guide us to new understandings via zoomed meetings.
The first seminars took us to the Rockefeller Archive Center in Tarrytown, NY, the Open Society Archives in Budapest, Hungary, the FRUS Collection with the US State Department Office of the Historian and the CIA Reading Room, and the Cold War collections at the British National Library, and sessions on Polish and Latin American sources.
