BEHIND THE SCENES TOUR AND LIBRARY ORIENTATION AT THE CINCINNATI HISTORICAL SOCIETY LIBRARY
If you are researching Hamilton County or Cincinnati ancestors, you have undoubtedly paid a visit to the Cincinnati Historical Society’s Library, located in the Museum Center at Union Terminal. Our February program will be an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour and Library orientation led by Librarian, M'lissa Kesterman.
On Wednesday, February 22, 2012, we will meet at the Library, located in the lower level of the Museum Center, at 10:00 am. Ms. Kesterman will begin the program with an overview of the library’s on-line catalog and then take us back to the stacks for a look at the photo, map, and other special collections housed at the Library. As the Library’s entire collection is not available on-line, this should give researchers a better idea of the variety and scope of the specialized collections available. The program will end in the Hauck Research Room, where the majority of genealogical holdings are available on the shelves, and the extensive newspaper collection is available for microfilm viewing.
The program will end at 12:00 noon, at which time the library is open to the public. You are encouraged to stay and make use of the collections you have just discovered! You may bring your own lunch, or food is available in the rotunda of the Museum Center, along with the dining area.
This private tour is limited to 18 people. To make your reservations or for more information, contact Linda Dietrich, Program Chairperson.
