Interested in learning about local history resources and developing your own local history research project? Join historians Alison Isenberg from Princeton University and Richard Anderson from Penn State, Izzy Kasdin and Stephanie Schwartz from the Historical Society of Princeton, and librarian Gayle Stratton of the Princeton Public Library for a hands-on learning and discussion program.

The presenters will share information about Princeton and Mercer County resources, including historical newspaper databases and manuscript archives, as well as a how-to miniguide for conducting oral history interviews. Following the presentations, attendees will break into small groups to consult on specific research questions with presenters. All ages welcome.

Presented in partnership by the Princeton Public Library, the Historical Society of Princeton, the Program for Community-Engaged Scholarship at Princeton University, and the Princeton-Mellon Initiative in Architecture, Urbanism and the Humanities
