On Saturdays, the Tennessee State Library and Archives periodically hosts free "Workshop Series" lectures, featuring experts from our staff and researchers from outside our institution. The goal of the "Workshop Series" is to share information about materials and services offered by the Library and Archives, and to provide opportunities for scholars, genealogists, and historical researchers to share their work. Each lecture draws upon the resources of the Library and Archives, and informs our audience about the historic value of our vast collection, and how they may use it in their own research.
