Researching Women's History in Washington: Women and Activism
A workshop jointly sponsored by the U.S. Capitol Historical Society,
the Library of Congress, and the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum
Friday, March 24
9:00 am - 12:15 pm
Join us for a half-day workshop designed to familiarize you with the area's largest repositories of primary sources for women's history. Using "Women and Activism" as a central theme, representatives from the Library of Congress, the National Archives Records Administration, the Mary McLeod Bethune Council House, the Sewall-Belmont House, and other institutions will present an overview of their collections and the types of topics or queries those collections address. The workshop concludes with a panel that will draw together research opportunities, discuss what researchers should do before they visit an archive, and give attendees the chance to ask questions of the speakers.
Don't miss this opportunity to expand or refine your research capabilities!
Registration is required.
