The National Library’s Pictures and Manuscripts collections contain a treasure trove of primary source material, but searching them can feel like looking for a needle in a haystack.

In this session, discover the rich and diverse performing arts collections in the library. You’ll learn about accessing pictures and manuscripts material in the Special Collections Reading Room, narrowing down the scope of your request using finding aids and how copyright and access restrictions can affect your research.
