Yesterday, I had the most awesome experience ever. I got to spend an afternoon at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland.

I took the photo above, which you’ll notice is at a slight angle. The guard inside had informed me that I could take photos, as long as I didn’t get any security personnel in the pictures. So … being afraid I might accidentally catch one through the window, I took the photo at an angle. That way I could avoid being arrested or wrestled to the ground, which worked out best for everyone, I think. 🙂

I hadn’t been to the National Archives in so many years. The last time I went there was when I was in library school, way back when.

I must say, the place is absolutely a researcher’s dream. They have all sorts of documents, plus audio and video files!

But, best of all, they have a YouTube channel! 🙂

So check out what I found on the National Archives YouTube channel!

Isn’t that cool? But you know what’s even cooler?

I got to take a tour of the archives with the amazing Jeff Krulik, the documentary filmmaker who made Ernest Borgnine on the Bus! 🙂
