March 8: Uncovering the Mysteries of the Lilly Library

pr4611-a55-d33_00004Have you ever wanted to conduct research at the Lilly Library but weren’t sure where to start? Have you ever felt daunted by all of the various finding aids on the Lilly Library’s website? Have you ever hankered to get your hands on a real old-fashioned card catalog drawer? Have you ever wanted to go “behind the scenes” and see the Lilly Library’s stacks? Are you ready to go down the research rabbit hole but feel like you need a guide?

Join us on Tuesday, March 8, 3:00-5:00 for a breakout session from the Uncovering the Mysteries of the IU Libraries series, presented by IU Libraries Scholars’ Commons. We will cover the basics of Lilly Library research and also delve into some of the more esoteric avenues of inquiry available to Lilly Library patrons. We will spend hands-on time with examples of rare books and manuscripts drawn from the collections and a tour of the library’s stacks.

This workshop is especially designed to help graduate students who may be interested in designing research projects around rare and archival material; however, all interested participants are welcome. You need bring only your curiosity!
