Steenbock Library welcomes expanded archives and new head of oral history program

The University Archives and Records Management Services has consolidated into renovated space on the fourth floor of Steenbock Library.  Archives Director David Null and the rest of the staff have moved from Memorial Library to Steenbock.  Hours are 8:00 to 4:30, Monday through Friday.  More information can be found on the Archives web site.  The Archives also has recently hired Troy Reeves (treeves@library.wisc.edu) as head of its Oral History Program.

The Oral History Program interviews retired faculty and staff members about their research and careers at the University. Feel free to contact Troy about possible people for the program to interview.  The Oral History Program will soon be looking for more volunteers, especially retired faculty and staff, to interview colleagues in their departments or area.  Contact Troy to find out more about becoming an interviewer.

An increasingly important activity of the Archives is digitization of valuable archival materials.   An exciting new project is digitization of the Archives’ entire collection of Aldo Leopold materials.  This project is being funded by a grant to the Aldo Leopold Foundation from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission.   Materials from this project will begin to be available online soon.  To see other digitized Archives collections, visit http://archives.library.wisc.edu/exhibits/index.html.

Please join Steenbock in welcoming the archivists to their new space, and drop in for a visit the next time you come to Steenbock!
