      EVENT DETAILS
      Tennessee Virtual Archive Workshop (TeVA)

      In a Saturday afternoon workshop on September 28, Digital Materials Librarian, Jennifer Randles, will take us on a tour of the vast collection of records available via the newly-redesigned Tennessee Virtual Archive. This free online depository of Tennessee’s history was overhauled in 2018 to make it more mobile-friendly and more accessible to the public. Researchers can now find thousands of digitized historic items from the collections of the Tennessee State Library and Archives, such as photographs, documents, maps, bible records, cemetery records, special collections, postcards, audio, and video. In addition, the digital collections cover everything from quilts to agricultural resources, the Civil War to the Tennessee School for the Deaf, and Suffrage to the Scopes Monkey Trial.

      Jennifer Randles is the Digital Materials Librarian at the Tennessee State Library and Archives in Nashville. Randles holds a master’s degree in Information Science from the University of Tennessee. Prior to joining TSLA, she worked at Scripps Networks Interactive and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville Libraries.

      The workshop is free and open to the public and presented by the McClung Historical Collection, Knox County Archives, and the East Tennessee Historical Society. The program will be held on Saturday, September 28, at 1:00 p.m. in the auditorium of the East Tennessee History Center, 601 S. Gay Street, Knoxville.
