How To Do Research at YIVO: A Practical Introduction

Hosted By: YIVO

The Archives and Library at the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research represent the single largest and most comprehensive collection of materials on Eastern European Jewish civilization in the world. With some 23 million items in the YIVO Archives and nearly 400,000 volumes in all European languages in YIVO’s Library, the possibilities for research are endless.

Join YIVO archivist Hallel Yadin for an overview on how to do research at YIVO. The program will cover what one can expect to find in YIVO’s extensive archival and library holdings and how to access the collections. Yadin will also share tips on how to use YIVO’s databases to effectively search for and organize materials. This event is open to anyone interested in doing online and/or in-person research at YIVO. All are welcome to attend: scholars, students, amateur researchers, and anyone who has ever been curious about YIVO’s vast collections.
