Two iSchool graduate students, Laurie Rizzo and Eric Rosenzweig, are processing three of our collections: Evening College records, College of Engineering records, and Library records. As mentioned in this space earlier this year
Mark your calendars! The University Archives will host an opening reception for the new exhibition, It's [Not] Always Online. Curated by Estelle Markel-Joyet, Archives intern and iSchool student, the exhibition focuses on reference books of the last 500 years. The reception runs from 4-6 p.m. on the Lower Level of Hagerty Library, 33rd and Market Streets.

The University Archives will close at 2:00 today, Friday, October 23, due to an unfortunate combination of illness and staff training.
