Celebrating American Archives Month! Trash or Treasure? Collecting in an Archive
Thursday, October 26, 2017 | 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Max M. Fisher Federation Building
6735 Telegraph Road, Bloomfield Hills
Archives hold one of our most precious resources: history. Yet, few understand what is considered “historic” and what is considered “trash.” Join Federation archivist Robbie Terman for a discussion on life in an archival repository: what is collected, why and what happens next.
No charge, but seating is limited | Bagels and coffee will be served.
Questions? Email Robbie Terman or call 248-203-1491.
Please RSVP by October 19 below
