Ever felt lost in archival papers? Been stumped by a finding aid? Felt like you and archivists just don't speak the same language?

Kate Silbert will discuss practical tips on developing research strategies and decoding finding aid lingo. Based on lessons one historian learned behind the scenes at the Clements Library, the talk will feature hints from archivists on accessing material as well as a discussion of what goes into preparing a collection. The staff at the Clements is eager for conversation with students about improving researchers' experiences.
