    Hi Everyone -

    I just wanted to send an e-mail to invite you and your staffs to participate via webinar in a free Department of the Interior Library Training Session entitled "Researching Native American Records at the National Archives," on Wednesday, April 15th from 2:00 to 3:00 pm ET, part of our series of free training sessions available from 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 These holdings include historical documents, photographs, audio recordings, and other materials created by Federal agencies, Federal courts, and the U.S. Congress from the eighteenth century to the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 this class will only be offered online via WebEx webinar. Please go to the following link to request webinar access information:
