In Our Own Backyards: Evanston history collections

Six local archivists and curators will describe their Evanston history collections and how you can use them during an event at the Evanston Public Library at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3.

The event is part of Chicago Open Archives: Collecting and Connecting a celebration of American Archives Month sponsored by Chicago Area Archivists.

Since 1982, the Chicago Area Archivists has worked to provide opportunities for local archivists, historians, librarians and others in the Chicago metro area to meet together for discussion, social interaction, and education.
