How To Do Research at YIVO: What is an Archive?

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 crucial and fundamental questions including: What is an archive? How is an archive different from a library? How are archives and libraries used, and by whom? What key terminologies associated with archives and libraries are useful to know?

Yadin will also cover the basics of how to search for material at YIVO. This event is open to anyone interested in doing research (online or in-person) at YIVO or learning more about YIVO’s vast collections.
