Hi Everyone -

I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to the
Department of the Interior Library on Thursday, March 28th from 2:00 to
3:00 pm ET for a free training session entitled "Researching Native
American Records at the National Archives," part of our series of free
training sessions at the DOI Library.

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) houses vast amounts
of material related to Native American cultures, histories, and
individuals. These holdings include historical documents, photographs,
audio recordings, and other materials created by Federal agencies, Federal
courts, and the U.S. Congress from the eighteenth century to the present.
Given the volume of material related to Native Americans in NARA's
holdings, locating and accessing particular records can seem daunting.
However, NARA has multiple tools available to help researchers identify and
access records online. Rose Buchanan and Adam Berenbak, Archivists with the
National Archives and Records Administration, will provide an overview of
these tools and discuss strategies for searching for Native American
records at NARA.

All that are interested are invited.  Please note that the DOI Library is
located in Room 1151 of the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior
Building, just off the C Street entrance lobby. The Stewart Lee Udall
Department of the Interior Building is located at 1849 C Street, NW in
Washington, DC.  Space for the program in the Library is limited so please
go to the following link to register:
