Looking forward to seeing everyone at "Preserving Labor's History" on Monday, July 1st at 10:30am
Preserving Labor’s History
For decades, librarians and archivists have worked to collect, organize, preserve, and make accessible the important documents that record the history of the labor movement: its progress and triumphs as well as its set-backs.
This program will highlight the ways librarians, archivists, and others have preserved labor’s rich and vital history, and the ways they have worked to educate generations on the important role of labor unions in American life.
Larry Spivack, President of the Illinois Labor History Society.
Shawn Nicholson, Assistant Director at the Michigan State University Library will discuss the Lansing Auto Town Gallery, a collection of oral histories of former employees of several auto plants that have since closed.
Program is on Monday, July 1, 10:30 – 11:30 at McCormick Place, S103a
Organized by the AFL-CIO/ALA Joint Committee on Library Service to Labor Groups
