This program has been postponed. We hope to reschedule at a later date.
Interested in exploring the Newberry’s vast collection of rare books, maps, manuscripts, and primary sources but not sure where to start? Then this session is for you. In an informal orientation, Newberry librarians will introduce you to the Newberry and break down how to use our collection. If you’re new to the Newberry, new to research libraries, or an occasional visitor ready to take your humanities research to the next level, “Newberry 101” is a must.
The session will last approximately an hour. Afterwards, you’re welcome to begin exploring our collections in the General Reading Room, where a reference librarian will help with suggestions and assistance.
To maximize research time, feel free to register in advance for a Newberry Readers Card here: https://requests.newberry.org
Readers Cards will be issued after the orientation.
