Archives, Books and Databases for Scholarly Research: An Orientation to Resources


Brooke Watkins, Bibliographer for German, and Thomas Lannon, Assistant Curator in the Manuscripts and Archives Division, will offer a one-hour instructional course aimed at graduate research focusing on fulltext databases not otherwise available at the CUNY Graduate Center, such as America’s Historical Imprints and both Readex and Proquest Historical Newspapers. This short session will help researchers locate items across the Library’s special collections, begin more specific research in archives, and learn how to navigate the NYPL’s research centers. Archives, Books and Databases for Scholarly Research will be offered twice this spring:

Wednesday, March 27, 6-7pm
South Court Classrooms (1st floor)
Stephen A. Schwarzman Building


Please RSVP Brooke Watkins at or 212-930-0033 and include both your name and your subject interest.
