Ann Arbor, MI
The Wayne State chapter of Society of American Archivists will be hosting a tour to a handful of neighboring repositories in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. We have a sign-up sheet, which you can find at this link, where you can join us individually, via SLIS-mobile, or through carpooling from a friend (or volunteers on the list). The itinerary is this:
- 8:45 Depart Reuther (for those of you who need a ride from campus)
- 10:00 Arrive at the William Clements Library in Ann Arbor
- 11:00ish Depart Clements
- 12:00 Arrive Gerald Ford Presidential Archives
- 1:00ish Depart Ford
- 1:30ish Arrive Eastern Michigan University
- Before 3:00 Depart EMU
- 4:00 Return to Campus
- Decamp to local watering hole for food and debrief.
The schedule includes all three institutions, but neglects meals due to time scrunching. If you are interested in joining, feel free to bring something to snack on either before or after touring one (or all) of the above institutions. We are also accommodating a few members of the Walter Reuther faculty to join us, who can provide unique experiences and humorous stories during the in-between treks to each institution, so sign-up soon if you would like a spot in the SLIS-mobile. Upon returning to campus, a number of our members will be meeting up for food at a local bar or restaurant. Said location is currently undecided. But for those of you interested in taking part, please feel free to sign up, and take this opportunity to meet professionals in the field.
I look forward to seeing you all on this trip. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
