  • Using the NARA online catalogs
  • Understanding the NARA structure (Archives I & II, Presidential Libraries, Regional Archives) to maximize the productivity of your research trip
  • Accessing NARA materials at the Yale University Library through databases, microfilm collections, and Interlibrary Loan (do you need to leave New Haven for your research?)
