We have an opportunity to work with an institution in Kansas City, the Black Archives of Mid-America from to about .
This course, ISLT 9410 (1 credit hour) will provide a basic overview of archival practices, including accession and cataloging materials, supplemented by field experience. Tentatively, Dr. Buchanan would lead a five-hour "Intro to Archives" session on the 26th (either in KC or Columbia) and then students will be expected to work on-site, located in the historic 18th & Vine district. SISLT and the students may be able to facilitate lodging and meal arrangements.
Contact Dr. Buchanan for more information or if interested.
