IAP 2010: Finding and Using Historical Newspapers

Posted January 25th, 2010 by mit-admin

Whether for research or for fun, reading historical newspapers gives us a fascinating view of the past. This hands-on workshop will show you how to find and use newspapers (online and otherwise) going back as far as the 17th century. Focus will be on U.S. papers, though international papers will also be covered.

If you need to gather facts and primary sources for papers and reports, want background information for a creative writing project, or are just curious how much the critics liked your favorite classic book or movie, this session is for you! Bring your Boston Public Library card number, if you have one.

WHEN: Tuesday, January 26, 4 – 5pm

WHERE: DIRC, 14N-132

Contact Michelle Baildon with any questions.
