Saturdays at NYPL: Open House for Archival Encounters
at The Henry W. and Albert A. Berg Collection of English and American Literature

March 24th and April 14th: 10am-2pm
Room 320,
Stephen A. Schwarzman Building
at 42nd Street and 5th Avenue

The New York Public Library, the Twentieth Century Area Studies Group, the Doctoral Students' Council, the English Program at The Graduate Center, CUNY, Lost and Found: The CUNY Poetics Document Initiative, and the Center for the Humanities invite you to:

--hone your archival research skills
--read with your colleagues and speak with a specialist
--encounter new material and new possibilities for your work

The open house hours coincide with regular reader hours at Berg, but we encourage you to pre-register via this form to ensure availability. You’ll receive an email with further instruction and confirmation of a suggested time slot for your arrival. Stay as long or as short as you like, or as your schedule permits.

The purpose of the Saturday Reading Series is synergy and conviviality, but please know you are always able to schedule a reference appointment during regular researcher hours in collections held at The New York Public Library for your work. Please contact Mary Catherine Kinniburgh <marycatherinekinniburgh [at] nypl [dot] org> if you’d like to do so, for materials at the Berg in Room 320 or any other divisions of interest.

All visitors must follow reading room procedures, including checking all non-research items at the ground floor coat-check, bringing a government ID and NYPL library card (which can be obtained on-site in Room 315), and completing a short registration form in person.

For questions, please contact the organizers: Jason Nielsen <jason.r.nielsen [at] gmail [dot] com> and Mary Catherine Kinniburgh <marycatherinekinniburgh [at] nypl [dot] org>.
