“NO MORE SECRETS”: Or, How To Get The Most Out Of The American Foreign Policy Resources At The British Library

British Library Conference Centre, Meeting Room 4

Monday 8 November 2010

15.00 – 17.00

Convenors: Professor Matthew Jones (University of Nottingham) and

Dr Steven Casey (London School of Economics)

This workshop will introduce researchers, including postgraduate MA and PhD students, to American foreign policy primary sources at the British Library.  It will highlight the Library’s ever-expanding digital collections, as well as its printed document collections, newspaper resources, and microfilm holdings. It will particularly emphasize materials on the twentieth-century.

The convenors will illustrate how these abundant and valuable resources can be used in a practical and applied way for discrete projects, and will use case studies of their own research experiences to show this in action.

There will be opportunities for all those attending to discuss their own work and to discover how it might benefit from the Library’s resources.

The workshop is sponsored by the Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library.

Admission is free; booking is essential. Refreshments will be provided.
