The Center for Jewish History Seminar on Archival and Historical Research is a four-day program for rising college seniors, MA students and first- and second-year doctoral students to learn the skills of conducting archival research at one of the premier research libraries in the United States. The seminarís focus is on learning a variety of tools for accessing information and incorporating archival and library research into specific projects. In addition, participants will be introduced to the vast holdings of the Centerís partner organizations, and the ways those collections are created, stored, and preserved.
The 2014 research seminar will welcome students from various disciplines including history, Jewish studies, literature, religion, politics, sociology, anthropology, as well as area and regional studies. Teaching sessions will be led by scholars familiar with the collections based at the Center; archivists and librarians of the Centerís five partner organizations; staff members of the Centerís Lillian Goldman Reading Room; and the Centerís Graduate, Postdoctoral, and Senior Scholar Fellows. Participants will have the opportunity to conduct their own research in the Centerís Reading Room, utilizing the full complement of available research tools.
