Academic Library Roundtable: Archives & Special Collections FIELD TRIP

Behind the Scenes: Connecticut Museum of Culture and History

We're going on a field trip and we'd love for you to come! 

Join us on Saturday, April 13 at 11:00 am for a behind the scenes tour of the Connecticut Museum of Culture and History! We'll be able to peek behind the curtains - literal and figurative - to see how archives are handled and how items are processed and cared for at the museum, as well as to view the collections and exhibits. 

There is a $10 ticket fee for admission, payable at the time of the tour. 

Space is limited; please register to secure your spot!


ABOUT THE ROUNDTABLE: All academic library roundtables are open to any librarian or support staff who works in an academic library. The goal is to share concerns, struggles and triumphs that staff working in academic libraries face, and give staff a chance to collaborate and share ideas.
