Additionally, we will be scheduling a variety of 20-minute presentations throughout the day, including:

  • Demonstrations of low-cost preservation tools and techniques in our Conservation Lab.

  • A gallery talk on our current exhibit on the history of archives in Northeast Ohio.

  • A presentation on using special collections and archives in creative ways in makerspaces.

  • A presentation on the ongoing renovation of our Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship.

  • A poster presentation on American Theatre Archives Project activities in Cleveland.         

We will offer each of these presentations at several times during the day. A detailed schedule will be available on our website a few weeks prior to the event, and also provided upon arrival to walk-in visitors.
