From 19th Century newspapers to the latest in online course offerings, the Tennessee State Library and Archives’ (TSLA) web pages give Tennesseans free access to a huge number of research databases. Although TSLA has something for almost everyone, some people need tips about what’s available and how best to find it.
To help people navigate to the information they need, the library’s staff is hosting a free workshop Oct. 8 from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the TSLA building in downtown Nashville.
Staff members Laine Sutherland and Trent Hanner will provide an overview of the available resources and discuss the benefits of specific databases like AncestryLibrary, HeritageQuest, Fold3 and others.
Sutherland will give an overview of TSLA’s web pages, which can be found under the Tennessee Department of State web site, while Hanner will talk specifically about the databases available at TSLA.
“Information is only useful when you know where and how to find it,” Secretary of State Tre Hargett said. “I hope this lecture will make it easier for researchers to tap into the vast online resources available through TSLA.”
