Free Online Lessons on Archival Research Basics

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), Pacific Alaska Region, in coordination with The Alaska Network for Understanding American History (ANUAH) is offering free online lessons on Archival Research Basics. Each consists of a Powerpoint presentation and other downloadable materials like worksheets, citations, analysis forms, research logs, etc.  These can be downloaded directly from this location at no charge.

If you want graduate credit for these lessons, the cost is $90 and you will need to sign up here. The course includes assignments, regular feedback from the archives, and a full day in the Seattle or Anchorage National Archives doing a guided research project.

Thank you to Carol Buswell of the National Archives at Seattle for information on this course.

It does look great and I think I will work on this over the summer or at the earliest, Spring Break, when I may have some time to focus on it!
