Tuesday, 12 November, 2019 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM |
Booth Library's University Archives & Special Collections and the Illinois Regional Archives Depository (IRAD) housed within it are unique resources on the EIU campus. The University Archives houses the 1895 Old Main time capsule, Garner Sheet Music Collection, and an oral history interview collection. The Archives serve to preserve University history through photographs, documents, faculty manuscript collections, and other diverse ephemera. Booth Library’s Special Collections represent a broader range of resources, including postcard collections, regional history related resources, and rare bound volumes from as far back as the 17th century.
Bill Schultz, Jr., Cataloging Librarian who also serves as the Interim Head of the University Archives & Special Collections will provide an overview of the University Archives, Special Collections and IRAD. He will show examples of the types of records and documents that can be found in each area, discuss archival practices to organize and preserve such materials, and also present an orientation to this department’s online archival resources. He will also touch on how individuals can take steps to preserve their own physical and digital collections. The session will last approximately 90 minutes and will include a tour of the University Archives.
