Registration is required. There are 15 seats available.

Join special collections librarians and archivists and fellow students at this in-person meetup with materials, as we welcome the curious back to our Special Collections & Archives Reading Room. (A second Material Encounters session will occur on Thursday, 11/18, 3:00-4:30pm).

At each event, staff will discuss and share newly acquired and processed collections, including materials featured in recent CART fellowship projects. A variety of formats will be available for you to explore: photography, local history archives, artists’ books, early printed books, broadsides, and more. And each event will feature a different mix of collections. Come to one or both Material Encounters!

CART Commons programs are hosted by Special Collections & Archives, University Library, in collaboration with the Elisabeth Remak-Honnef Center for Archival Research and Training (CART).

CART Commons fosters a sense of community for UC Santa Cruz students involved in archival research. Gatherings include hands-on archival explorations and informal presentations alongside opportunities to consider questions related to primary source research practices. Please visit the CART Commons website to learn more and join the CART Commons Mailing List.
