Registration Open for Library of Congress Historical Company Research Webinar (Wed., June 9, at 12:00 PM CDT)

(via the Library of Congress)

​The Library offers a number of orientations/classes and that includes Business Reference.  We have given the in-person So…you want to research old companies at the Library of Congress before and because there was interest, we are doing it this time as a webinar! On Wednesday, June 9, starting at 12:00 PM CDT, we are teaching the Historical Company Research Webinar.

While the class is primarily about using the Library’s resources to do historical research on companies, some of the resources we cover aren’t necessarily specific to the Library, so if you can come, you may be able to take what you learn and see if your local public libraries and historical societies have resources that can help with this type of research. We plan on covering print and electronic sources–both free and subscription–as well as giving a few tips and tricks picked up over the years.

So if you found an old stock or bond certificate in a relative’s papers, or you are interested in the company that made that cool item you found while antiquing, this class might be for you!

If you want to attend, you can register here.
