Special Collections: Let’s Discuss Re-Opening!

In these days of changing health and safety protocols, questions abound. Some institutions are being directive; others are indecisive or non-communicative.

Are you in a quandary about re-opening your archives and special collections this fall? Do you have re-opening ideas and news that you would like to share with regional colleagues? If either answer is yes, please plan to participate in a special Online Town Hall meeting of the ASA Special Collections group. (If both answers are yes, be sure to sign up ASAP.)

When:  Wednesday, June 9, 2021 at 3:00 p.m. (Eastern)

How: Via Zoom. The link will be provided upon registration.

Cost: Free! (Taxes and gratuities included. No cover charge.)

Seating is limited to the first 300 people who register, so don’t be shy about inviting others.
