October is Virginia Archives Month
October brings many things: cooler weather, changing leaves, football, and Virginia Archives Month. You might not be familiar with that last one yet, but we hope you will join us in "Celebrating Advocacy for Archives." We have long been advocates for collecting, preserving and providing access to materials of enduring value. We invite you to observe this month by attending the lectures, book talks, tours, and other events hosted by VCU and local institutions. On October 28th there will be an Archives Fair at Cabell Library. Representatives from archives around Virginia will be available to talk about their collections, institutions, and assist you with your research needs.
Don't forget about Special Collections and Archives here at Tompkins-McCaw Library. Our manuscript collections include the personal papers of nurses, physicians, dentists and others as well as the records of various professional organizations. Collections are always being added and are available for use by faculty, staff, students and the general public. Special Collections also holds a wide array of medical artifacts, rare books, photographs, and portraits. If you have questions please stop by. We are here to help.
Thank you for your support!
