Renovations Nearly Complete

Over the past three months the archives has been undergoing a large amount of construction. Sara Kizska, our Records Analyst, has received a new office; the microfilm readers have been moved to her old office, and the Archives has acquired a new conference room and kitchenette. The reading room has experienced multiple layout changes throughout the process, which has made it difficult for patrons to conduct research. We are still waiting on carpet for Sara’s office but the rest of the Archives is fully functional! (get it Marcus?). We are excited to host patrons in a comfortable environment.

The construction ended in perfect timing for the upcoming events in October. On the 15th at 7:00pm in room 126 of the LRC Liz Oliver-Fielding will be giving a presentation on the “The Embezzling Bishop.” On October 29th at 7:00pm in room 126 of the LRC Professor Chet DeFonso and Nikki Wilhelm will be discussing the resources the archives has that are relevant to LGBTQ topics. Come check out the Archives!
