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.

Our second presenter is Jessica Wilson, South Kingstown Public Library (SKPL), who will give an overview about how the library is commemorating US involvement in WWI. We'll have a discussion about what your library might do to commemorate it or the events surrounding it. The Rhode Island World War One Centennial Commission will be delighted with your participation in ways great or small.

Their will also be time for members to network around selected topics.
