LOC Online Orientation Programs

The Digital Reference Section conducts a one-hour orientation monthly via Web conference. Throughout the program, there are opportunities to ask questions, try various search tools, sample the multimedia primary source materials online, and become familiar with the digital formats on the site.

Additional videoconferencing programs are available to researchers to acquaint them with the many collections available on the Web.
