Tennessee State Library & Archives Website Review


I recently attended a seminar on the Tennessee State Library & Archives given by Chuck Sherrill, Tennessee State Librarian and Archivist. He has published more than twenty books on Tennessee historical records. While I have visited the Tennessee State Library & Archives’ website, I did not realize until this lecture how many resources it provides. Here are a few of their collections you can take advantage of – some from the comfort of your own home, and others on location in Nashville, Tennessee.
