Lecture: Dusting Off the Past: How Stories Become Part of MD Archives

February 21, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Join us for a lecture with Maria Day, Senior Director of Special Collections, Conservation, and Library Services at Maryland State Archives.

How do old documents, books, and photographs find their way into an archive where people can discover and request them?

This presentation will take you on a behind-the-scenes journey to demonstrate how archivists and conservators identify, preserve, and bring memories from attics and basements into public collections. These documentary traces become the evidence that people can use to write histories.

Free for members; $10/ non-members. All attendees must register in advance.
