Virtual Programs

AAS is committed to bringing its collections and resources to the widest audience possible.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact public gatherings, AAS is increasing its virtual programming.


AAS seeks to help bring the work of American historians before the general public--to connect scholars and citizens.
AAS virtual public programs spotlight the work not only of historians but also of creative and performing artists and writers who have performed research at the Society. Programs typically last 45 minutes to one hour.


Virtual Book Talks showcase authors of recently published scholarly monographs, digital-equivalents, and creative works broadly related to book history and print culture. Each installment includes an informal presentation from the author and a Q&A with the audience. These talks are streamed live for registered participants and are recorded for posterity. Talks typically last 45 minutes to one hour.


The American Antiquarian Society hosts informal webinars on various aspects of its collections and their use. Each session is standalone and includes time for an open Q & A with an AAS staff member.

A four-part series on searching and navigating AAS’s catalog is available periodically. The topics are:

    • Foundations
    • North American Imprints Program, the Evans years (pre-1801)
    • Keyword & Browse
    • Introduction to MARC


These programs have been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor
