Join us for Connecting Collections and Learning on Nov. 15

NKU’s Scripps Howard Center for Civic Engagement invites you to an exciting Engage@NKU Breakfast on Friday, November 15 from 8:30-11 a.m.  The event features special guest speaker Valerie Komor, the corporate archivist for the Associated Press. Valerie will discuss the challenges and unique requirements of  archiving for a worldwide organization. She will also share a few stories on “discoveries” she has made in the AP archives.

Participants will hear from Dr. Brian Hackett, NKU’s public history program director, about how students are working with area museum and will learn from Lois Hamill, university archivist and associate professor, about the resources available at the W. Frank Steely Library’s Special Collections and Archives. Participants will have an opportunity to network with NKU faculty and staff after the event.

The general public is invited to attend this event. However, staff, board members and volunteers with museums, historical associations, archives, and preservation groups may be especially interested in attending.

Reservations are recommended as seating is limited and filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
