Your first visit to an archives or special collections department can be a little intimidating...

What tools and guides are used to locate materials?

What additional security measures should you expect?

What's a finding aid?

Why do researchers need to wear gloves??

UMBC's Special Collections Archivist will answer all of these questions and more so that you will be prepared to perform archival research with confidence!

Join us Wednesday March 11 from 12-1 in the Special Collections Reading Room, located in the Albin O. Kuhn Library through the Gallery on the 1st floor. For more information please contact Lindsey Loeper at: lindseyloeper@umbc.edu or x56290. (Food and drink are not allowed, thank you!)
