As we approach autumn, catalogers in the Special Collections Processing Center turn our thoughts (with glee) to our annual Archives Month Philly Event.
This year, we are extremely excited to present:
From Antarctica to Zimbabwe:
Around the World with Archives, Books and Codices
In the words of Emily Dickinson, “There is no Frigate like a Book To take us Lands away.” But why stop at books? Add atlases, letters, travel diaries, photo albums, sketchbooks, souvenirs, posters, ocean liner menus, and the armchair travel possibilities are endless. Take a voyage through the far-flung geographical corners of our collections; the catalogers of the Kislak Center will be your guides!
October 23, 5 to 6:30 pm
Class of 78 Orrery Pavilion
Van Pelt-Dietrich Library, sixth floor
(please bring photo id for entry into Library)
Free and Open to the Public! All are Welcome!
