How to Google for Primary Sources (MAC webinar)

Feb 3, 2021

Yesterday I gave a webinar on How to Google for Primary Sources: teaching users/students to find and evaluate archives remotely.

This is one of my favorite things to teach, and I want to push more archivists to think beyond their own collections when it comes to reference and instruction.

Lots of folks asked for the slides, so here they are. I also pointed people towards my handouts on primary source search terms, evaluating cultural heritage digital collections, and evaluating social media as a primary source.

Thanks to the Midwest Archives Conference (MAC) for hosting this webinar for free. We were thrilled that more than 850 people registered and over 600 attended, from all over the globe!

I am also so grateful to attendee Jojo Karlin for tweeting out the visual notes pictured below. Jojo is currently a postdoc at NYU Libraries Digital Scholarship Services – check out her delightful Instagram.
