Using the Institute Archives to Research MIT History
2 April 2010
Ever wonder how to find out more about the history of MIT, locate the thesis of a famous MIT alum, or get historic background information on an MIT department, lab or program? Many answers can be found in MIT's Institute Archives, keepers of MIT's administrative records, faculty papers, theses, and MIT publications dating back to the 1800s. With MIT's 150th anniversary approaching, this was a particularly timely workshop for MIT communicators.
