TUSC Hosts Archives Social Hour during October, American Archives Month

Tulane University Special Collections (TUSC) invites the Tulane University community to its first Archives Social Hour. It takes place Wednesday, October 26, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. in the TUSC Reading Room in Jones Hall (6801 Freret St., room 202).

At this informal mixer, Tulane students, faculty, and staff can meet TUSC staffers, and learn how archives on campus can enhance academic research or personal enrichment. Refreshments will be served, including sweet Halloween treats. The event is also a celebration of American Archives Month, observed in October. An RSVP is recommended, but not required to attend.

A division of Tulane University Libraries, TUSC comprises five units: the Hogan Archive of New Orleans Music and New Orleans Jazz, the Louisiana Research Collection, Rare Books, the Southeastern Architectural Archive, and University Archives. Its holdings encompass nearly 2,500 archival collections, over 100,000 volumes of rare books that date back to the 13th century, and other rare and unique materials that document the history, culture, and communities of New Orleans and beyond.

For more information about the event, email Melissa A. Weber at mweber3@tulane.edu. To learn more about Tulane University Special Collections, visit the TUSC website at library.tulane.edu/tusc, email specialcollections@tulane.edu, and follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
