This is more information on the poster I presented at MARAC Fall 2017.

My poster evolved out of a project I had completed during my time at Slippery Rock University as a History undergrad. In conjunction with my position at the University Archives and a Public History course, I researched, created, promoted, and gave a presentation to engage student organizations with the University Archives and also solicit inactive records for deposition within the archives. Photos and an extended bibliography are found below.
