How to Do Research at YIVO: Pursuing Research Projects

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 24 million unique 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 Reference & Outreach Archivist Ruby Landau-Pincus for a workshop of how to pursue a research project using the YIVO Archives. This program will cover the very basics of doing research at YIVO, including formulating a research question, finding existing research, identifying sources through bibliographies, and effectively using the Center for Jewish History’s catalog. This workshop will define the scope of YIVO’s materials and explain the holdings of the library and the archives, so that new researchers can be better equipped to find materials that pertain to their work.

This event is open to anyone interested in doing research at YIVO or learning more about YIVO’s vast collections.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
