Event Name:
Fast and Affordable Methods for Training Staff on Genealogy


Library staff are getting inundated with requests for help with genealogy. How can staffers get up to speed quickly on this topic?  The training program outlined in this presentation will provide the knowledge that they need. Librarian, author and lecturer, Nicole Wedemeyer Miller, will discuss a series of self-study modules that can be pursued independently, quickly, and for little cost.

Learning Objectives:
  • You will learn the difference between genealogy and family history, and get an understanding of the types of information that researchers seek  
  • You will learn about helpful resources already in the reference collections of most libraries
  • You will learn how to get a handle on the types of records outside the library that researchers need and where they are located

Nicole Wedemeyer Miller is a writer, a researcher, and an Adjunct Lecturer at  the School of Information Sciences at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she established a course called “Genealogy and Library Service.” She has co-authored the book Fostering Family History Services: A Guide for Librarians, Archivists and Volunteers with Rhonda L. Clark, and has published several articles in genealogical and local history journals. She worked in public and academic libraries for twelve years.  Raised in the Chicago area and in New Orleans, she now lives in Champaign, Illinois with her family.
