Anyone have experience working with the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research or similar organizations?

Hi all.

So I’m an undergrad at a public uni in an East Asian country and this year will be my first time working with archival records for a history-based project. My research proposal and questions are already prepared. Specifically, I’m planning to reach out to the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research for remote access to their Dan and Yisha Ben-Canaan Collection on the Jews of Harbin.

I have an appointment with them next month, but what are some things I should keep in mind when doing this kind of remote historical research? Anyone have experience doing research with YIVO or other Jewish-oriented institutions? What was it like?

Thanks in advance 🙂
