Weeding Juvenile and Young Adult Materials

 

 

 

Does weeding juvenile or young adult collections differ greatly from weeding materials for adults? Join SWON for a webinar on September 26th to find out! We will go over the basic steps of the weeding process (withdrawal of materials from a library collection) and how to apply that process to youth collections.

Presenters:

Sarah Geisler has worked in public libraries for over ten years, with experience in reference, children’s services, and collection development. She currently works as Collection Services Librarian at the Campbell County Public Library in Northern Kentucky. She has a B.A. in Asian Studies from Mount Holyoke College and an M.L.S. from Queens College, City University of New York, and she was a 2007 ALA Spectrum Scholar.

Can't attend on the date and time listed? Anyone who registers in advance for SWON Webinars will receive an archived copy of the presentation for later viewing. SWON provides webinars to our Supporting Members for free (and to Geographic Members and everyone else at a reduced price), so there's no reason not to register today

PCI Webinar - Intermediate Genealogy: Census Records

 

 

 

Every beginning genealogist knows that Federal Census records are a great place to start searching for our ancestors. However, we can learn more from them than just the places, dates, and names listed.

Knowing the history and historical importance of data collected by census records is an important tool in every genealogist’s kit. Gleaning information not indexed in a database can lead to big breakthroughs in your research.

Learn how to sift through and interpret enumerator’s abbreviations as well as your ancestor’s historical data.

At the conclusion of webinar, participants will know:

●       How and where to access census records

●       The history and historical importance of census records for genealogical research

●       The type of data collected and how it relates to genealogy

●       The differences and similarities of local census records

●       Introductory knowledge about European census records
