SeriesSpecial Collections After Hours

Drop by anytime during this open house for an opportunity to peruse our extensive collection of letters, diaries, photographs, maps, books, and other material documenting early 20th century Philippine history, and an opportunity to learn about ReConnect/ReCollect: Reparative Connections to Philippine Collections at the University of Michigan. Join us in room 660 on the 6th floor of the Hatcher Library.

ReConnect/ReCollect is a two-year project funded by the Humanities Collaboratory to develop a framework and practices for culturally-responsive and historically-minded stewardship of the Philippine collections at the University of Michigan. Library staff and project team members will be on hand to answer questions about the collections and the project. Light refreshments will be provided!

Take advantage of our monthly Special Collections After Hours events to explore a sliver of the many books, documents, and artifacts in the Special Collections Research Center.
