Special Collections Roundtable
Rhode Island Archival and Manuscript Collections Online (RIAMCO) brings together historical materials from a variety of Rhode Island repositories, including museums, historical societies, and archives. These historical materials consist of items such as legal documents from a company or organization, a person’s diary, or historical photographs. RIAMCO does not own any of these materials, but only hosts descriptions of them online. It provides researchers with a central place to find historical materials in Rhode Island. Karen Eberhart, Brown University Libraries, will give a presentation on RIAMCO. Is your library or archives already a RIAMCO member? If it is, you can share your perspectives and insights. Not a member or want to become one? You will leave with lots of information, including how RIAMCO can make hidden collections more accessible to researchers, how to use it to answer reference questions and guidelines for teaching patrons about it.
The Roundtable meeting will also include time for members to network around selected topics.
