February 17, 2015. 5:30pm to 6:15pm. Library Room 214.

You've heard of William the Conqueror, right? Did you know his father, Robert, was called "the Magnificent?" That beats Charles the Bald I suppose, but was "the Bald" a moniker for a lack of hair or for his landlessness? Biographical research is often about discovering more than when a person was born. It can also be about discovering an individual's impact on their community, even changing the course of history. In this session, Michael Manasco will show you how to explore the resources at your disposal to learn about the major players, organizations, and movers and shakers of our world. to learn more;about important people and important trends among people. And, of course, the little moments that make learning about history so much fun.

This talk is open to all! (note, though, that some of the tools used will require a UAH login) The target audience is anyone interested in historical research or creating or reading a biography of an important historical figure.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Michael at michael.manasco@uah.edu or by phone at 824-6965.
