Newberry 101: An Introduction to Research at the Newberry

Saturday, Jun 3, 2023 9:30 – 10:30 pm

60 W. Walton
Chicago, IL 60610

This workshop will be held in-person at the Newberry.

Interested in exploring the Newberry’s vast collection of rare books, maps, manuscripts, and primary sources but not sure where to start? Then this session is for you. 

In an informal orientation, Newberry librarians will introduce you to the Newberry and break down how to use our collection. If you’re new to the Newberry, new to research libraries, or an occasional visitor ready to take your humanities research to the next level, “Newberry 101” is a must.

The session will last approximately an hour. Following the orientation, you're welcome to stick around for a guided tour of the library. You can also begin exploring our collections in the General Reading Room, where a reference librarian can provide assistance.
