30 Minutes to Better Research: Secret Information on 11/7

This week's topic in the library's series 30 Minutes to Better Research: Learning at the Library will focus on using Secret Information. This session will cover material that you can find searching the Digital National Security Archive and the U.S. Declassified Documents. The Digital National Security Archive contains documents related to critical world events, countries, and U.S. policy decisions from post World War II through the 21st century. U.S Declassified Documents range from the years immediately following World War II through the 1970s; nearly every major foreign and domestic event of these years is covered: the Cold War, Vietnam, foreign policy shifts, the civil rights movement, and many others.

Bring your questions about Hangar 18 and Area 51

Class this week will be held on Thursday, November 7 at 4:00pm and will be taught by Nathan Wolfe, Social Science and Data Librarian.
