Librarians of the Past & Closure Announcement

15 May

The Library and Archives in Tucson will be closed from Wednesday May 27 – Friday May 29th. The Tucson Librarians/Archivists have been accepted as speakers at the Archives Western Round-up (10 western states that meet every 5 years). They have been given a 90 minute slot for “Building Bridges in the Archives: Outreach Strategies that Focus on Collaboration, Promotion, and Accessibility.”
Please plan your research accordingly and we apologize for any inconvenience.

Today we also wanted to share with you a photograph of librarians of the past at AHS.

Closed Mondays

21 Nov

Starting January 5, 2015, the Library and Archives in Tucson will be closed on Mondays. The new reading room schedule will be Tuesday-Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.

We will be using Mondays to work on large-scale processing projects, complete grant projects, extend our outreach efforts, and begin an Archives Ambassador program. We will be sharing information about some of our projects here.

We appreciate your understanding as we work behind-the-scenes to make the AHS Library and Archives in Tucson better for everyone and we look forward to seeing you Tuesdays through Fridays in the new year!

Announcements and Closures

13 Aug

We hope everyone’s having a great summer! We have a few announcements regarding visiting the archives in the near future (since we know announcements can be boring, we’ve illustrated the announcements with photos from our collection!)

First of all – it’s cold in here! I know it’s a hot summer out there in Tucson, but the Reading Room is a steady 60 degrees so if you’re coming in to do research please dress accordingly!

It feels like this outside:

Closures: We are also going to have a few changes to our schedules in the next two months. During the week of August 25th through 29th we WILL ONLY BE OPEN FROM 1:30pm to 4pm. This is because we are in the midst of migrating our catalog and need the time in the morning to do crucial work on that project.

We will also be CLOSED from September 17th through September 19th to attend a workshop on preserving A/V materials which will be a great help to us in planning for the continued preservation of hundreds of feet of audiovisual material!
