February 21, 2013 | News

“Archives, Books and Databases for Scholarly Research” is a one-hour instructional course on the primary source materials in the New York Public Library’s historical research library. The course is co-sponsored by the CUNY Graduate Center Mina Rees Library and led by two NYPL librarians, who will present an overview of the books and specialized periodicals, as well as databases, in the Library’s general collection. The collection supports research in both American and European history, anthropology, political sciences and other research interests in the humanities and social sciences. “Archives, Books and Databases for Scholarly Research” is geared towards graduate students but may be appropriate for upper level undergraduates as well. All CUNY students have complete access to the NYPL’s collections.
