The National Archives, partnering with National History Day and the White House Historical Association, hosted several online webinars and Google Hangouts during the last three years. The growing success of the webinars demonstrates that archives outreach can be national without endangering records from travel or display and can engage the public at all ages. The speakers explain the process of webinar development and provide tips for institutions to expand outreach into online platforms.
