Attend Friday Finds Programs
Special Collections typically offers a variety of programs in support of its collections and exhibitions almost every Friday at noon.
Fall 2020: Any Friday Finds programs will be virtual events that follow a less predictable schedule. These events are free and open to the public. Classes are encouraged to attend.
Friday Finds can also be an opportunity for students to present research they've done on materials in Special Collections as part of a course assignment or independently. Please contact Special Collections staff if interested.
