North_America_satellite_globeThe North American Collections Group within the University of London is pleased to announce an American Trail as part of this year’s History Libraries and Research Open Day on 27th November 2015. This strand will be of interest to postgraduate students and early career researchers involved in North American Studies in the widest sense, encompassing subjects as diverse as history, literature, social sciences, gender and disability studies, art and music to broader interdisciplinary research.

At the open day you will learn more about what collections and resources are available in London to support your research. You will also gain practical research skills by attending various clinics and workshops organised by research librarians, archivists and academic staff.

The American Trail is an opportunity to engage with highly specialist library collections and staff, and to participate fully within the vibrant research network for the study of North America in London.
