What Do Genealogists Really Want from a Public Library? - PROGRAM
Venue: Indiana Convention Center
Room: Wabash Ballroom 1

Genealogists love public libraries as treasure troves of local history, especially as many libraries are digitizing their special collections. But all too often genealogical researchers aren’t finding the gems in library collections. Why not? And what else can librarians offer them? Come hear what genealogists really want from libraries--from a certified genealogist. And find out what a township library system and a national research collection have done to meet genealogists’ needs.
