The event will be held in the Archives Research Room on the fifth floor of the Healey Library, and light refreshments will be served in the adjoining Grossmann Gallery. Join your archivist colleagues and members of the FSU Executive Committee to explore a selection of materials representing the many wonderful primary source research collections that our library holds, such as original materials documenting local community organizations, social activism, the history of social work, Massachusetts politics, the Vietnam War, the women’s liberation and gay rights movements, the arts, the environment, and much more. 

Highlights will include:

Unable to join us for this event, but interested in incorporating the Healey Library’s Archives into your research and scholarship? Please email to speak with an archivist or schedule a research appointment, or explore the Archives’ digital collections site.
