dc.description.abstractMississippi State University (MSU) Libraries has held an annual Genealogy Fair for the last twelve years as a way to engage the community. The fair, named for E.O. Templeton, Jr. in 2013, features a variety of sessions, workshops, and research opportunities for history and genealogy enthusiasts, including hands-on research help from MSU librarians and archivists. Attendees learn about genealogical resources at the MSU Libraries, improve their genealogical research skills, pick up tips for preserving their family history, and have the opportunity to tour MSU Libraries' museums and exhibits. This poster presents information on how MSU hosts its fair, what it accomplishes in bringing community members to the library to discuss a popular hobby, and how other academic and public libraries in the state could host their own fairs.en_US
