Friday Feature: SCARC updates

A lot has been happening around SCARC lately!

We are in the midst of installing a new exhibit on the Obo Addy Legacy Project and Milagro (officially known as the Miracle Theater Group) in the 5th floor foyer. OMA curator Natalia Fernandez will write more about the exhibit in the Oregon Multicultural Archives blog, but here are some fun shots I took this morning.

History of Science librarian Anne Bahde had the Oregon Master Beekeepers program in for a visit this afternoon, but her big work over the past two weeks is a collection accession that will remain somewhat shrouded in mystery, but she reports that her favorite thing recently was bringing in a bag of irradiated dirt collected from Hanford in the 1970s. Here’s the teaser to the mystery – these boxes are now full – but not of dirt. Stay tuned for updates!

Of course my favorite thing from the past week was the OHBA prom launch party — Tap into History.

But I also travelled to Monterey a few weeks ago to present a poster at the National Council on Public History and was interviewed for Library Journal.
